Description: Technical note
Purpose: To present a method for estimating the dimensionless proportionality factor K used in the relationship for predicting cohensionless longshore sediment transport as given in the Shore Protection Manual (SPM) (1984) and presented as follows (Equation 4-48). The suggested relationship for K will allow SPM equation (4-48) to be extended to sand beaches with varying sediment size and to non-sand beaches (i.e. shell, cobble) where sediment fall velocity is known.
