Scaling relations from scale model experiments on equilibrium accretionary beach profiles
Movable bed, scale model experiments were conducted at three length scales, 1/8.5, 1/10 and 1/11, in a 90 ft-long wave tank to study scale effect and equilibrium profile characteristics under sinusoidal, accreting wave action. Geometric similarity, deep water wave steepness, wave Froude number, densimetric Froude number, and particle Reynolds number were preserved by selecting the same sediment and fluid in the model and prototype. Wave height was measured with parallel-wire resistance gauges wh
