Abstract

Perpendicular waves inducing sand bar formation dominate the main factor in case the river discharge can be neglected at a jettied river entrance. Under the action of perpendicular waves, sediment is transported and deposited at the jettied river entrance, which forms the sand bars at this area. The development of sand bar relates closely to incident waves and water depth at the mouth. Considering the height of sand bar and water depth at the mouth, this paper presents results of the experimental study on sand bar formation under the action of perpendicular waves. A demarcation between emerged and submerged bar was proposed for classifying the formation of sand bar.
