Abstract

The effects of wave breaking on sediment transport are studied through a new series of mobile-bed experiments in a large-scale wave flume. During the campaign, one experiment involving detailed sand transport process measurements was repeated at 12 different cross-shore location. This procedure allows studying of the cross-shore variation of sand transport processes along the breaking zone. Starting from an initially 1:10 slope followed by a horizontal test section, a breaker bar developed in the breaking region as a result of onshore transport pre-breaking and offshore transport post-breaking. Near-bed suspended sediment fluxes were directed offshore along the complete test section, suggesting that the onshore transport pre-breaking is mainly attributed to bedload. The offshore suspended flux was the sum of an onshore wave-driven component and an offshore current-driven component. The wave-driven contribution to total suspended transport rates seems significant mainly before the breaking point where they account for ~30% of total suspended transport fluxes.
