Description: Technical Report
Abstract: The purpose of this report is to survey the available literature for theories that predict the transport of cohesionless sediments by suspension in the surf zone in combined wave-current nearshore flows under conditions such that quasi-unidirectional currents do not dominate the combined flow. The selected formulae will form a basis for testing theoretical predictions with field measurements of suspended-sediment transport and requisite fluid and sediment quantities at a point within the surf zone or immediately adjacent to it. For each of the unique theories, a common set of variables is used to formulate an explicit mathematical expression for the suspended sediment transport rate. Redundant theories are those which differ only by numerical coefficients from any of the unique theories, having othexwise the same functional form. Accompanying each unique formula is an outline of its derivation, and a list of the assumptions underlying the derivation.
