Title: 3D Movable Bed Model Results Integration in a Shoreline Evolution Model
Issue Date: 2011
Abstract: The critical analysis of the performance of a medium to long-termshoreline evolution model, which incorporates bottom change updating based onpredefined rules, showed the need to improve processes description, namely beachprofile development under the action of different wave conditions. The absence ofcoherent field data sets, particularly expensive for high energetic coastal zones asis the case for the Portuguese west coast, together with the possibility to access anexperimental facility led to the completion of a three-dimensional movable bedmodel of a beach in a continued erosion situation. Furthermore, the effect of atransversal defense structure was also considered. The morphological time scaledetermination allowed the articulation between physical model results for profiledevelopment and simulations from the referred numerical model. Theinterpretation of these results, to what laboratory and scale effects were identified,may give some guidance for the numerical description of the profile development.
