Description: Technical report
Data from five series of movable bed laboratory experiments are presented in this report. These experiments were conducted in the Large-scale Sediment Transport Facility at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Vicksburg, MS. The data collected from these experiments is being used to improve longshore sand transport relationships under the combined influence of waves and currents and the enhancement of predictive numerical models of beach morphology evolution, in particular, with respect to modeling of tombolo development at detached breakwaters and T- groins. These data were instrumental in the development and validation of GENESIS-T, an enhanced version of GENESIS that allows for continued simulation of shoreline evolution after tombolo formation at detached breakwaters.
