Purpose: To present an improved method for estimating the terminal fall velocity of any beach sand. Fall velocity is used in predicting the occurrence of accreted (berm) or eroded (bar) nearshore profiles; see Section 4.525c of the Shore Protection Manual. Although definitive methods for engineering application have not yet been established, the fall velocity is expected to figure in the dimensions of bed forms and in the sediment transport.
