Wave flume experiments on the formation of longshore bars produced by breaking waves

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Mechanisms and processes of longshore bar formation were investigated in connection with vortices induced by breaking waves in the laboratory. Four kinds of wave-flume experiments were conducted using a two-video-camera system to examine the vortices and bar formation in detail. Four process models on bar formation are constructed based on the action of vortices: they are models for break-point single bar, inshore single bar, successive multiple bars, and simultaneous multiple bars. The occurrence condition for these four types of bars can be quantitatively determined
