Sand Transport in Oscillatory Flows in the Sheet-flow Regime

This project is to study the impact of sheet flow, occurring under high wave conditions when flow velocities at the seabed are high, on the overall sediment budget for a coastal area due to the very high sand transport rates associated. This project is a collaborative venture led by Aberdeen Univeristy in the UK and Twente University in the Netherlands. The contribution from the Coastal Modelling Group of Liverpool University to the project is to provide results from a two-phase model, developed in the Liverpool-led LUBA project, a recently completed collaborative project between Universities of Liverpool, Wales (Bangor) and Aberdeen, to assist with parameterisation for practical model predictions.
