Abstract: As presently used, the immersed weight rate, is the volume rate, Q, of longshore transport, multiplied by a constant. For use in engineering problems, must be converted back to the equivalent Q. The formulation may be important where the unit weight of sand differs significantly from the unit weight of sand at the open-coast sites contributing data to the design curve. Increase in void ratio may result in a 10- to 20-percent increase in actual (as compared to predicted) shoaling volumes where sand accumulates in protected water. Void ratio should be measured in field studies of longshore transport.
