Abstract

A stability analysis of gravel beaches, and development of their cross-sectional profiles under the action of gravitational wind waves, is described in the paper. The analysis was conducted using the numerical modelling technique. The modelling approach was also applied in the analysis of wave deformations and morphodynamics on the example of a gravel beach in Medveja. The designed beach cross-sections correlate well with the measured Medveja beach cross-sections, and so the methodology and the beach material erosion estimate can be applied in practice when making decisions at various design stages.

Keywords
