Hydrodynamic wave analysis as basis for sustainable beach design

Mijo Vranješ, Željan Pernat

Abstract

The regulation and stabilization of movable parts of shoreline is a complex task, as the sea and shore interaction is quite complex is such coastal areas. If the analysis concerns beaches, either natural or newly built ones, the task becomes even more complex as they are used for rest and recreation, and so an appropriate maintenance must also be provided. Numerical modelling is conducted to enable proper shaping and maintenance of beaches. In this paper, the CGWAVE model is used to optimize a beach made of granular material, in order to ensure its sustainability.

Keywords
