Modelling of gently-varying coastlines with cross shore structures - FD1003

Summary Objective:
Develop and test effective a quais-3D computational modelling tool to assess morphological changes in gently curving beaches in order to predict the consequent changes in beach profiles due to differences in cross-shore transport.

Key Customer Purpose:
Provide a model to predict changes in beach profiles due to differences in cross shore transport, allowing for effective management strategies to be implemented.
