One of the most economically and ecologically important issues related to coastal engineering is the preservation of the coastal areas. The mean to do so, is the good understanding of the sediment transport mechanisms that are involved in the transformation of coasts. In order to protect these valuable areas, man-made structures have been...

Natural reefs are important habitats for a wide range of species. Furthermore, they attenuate waves and thereby protect the leeside, functioning as coastal protection. Many reefs are however eroding or degraded, leading to a loss of these ecosystem services. Artificial reefs can reverse this negative trend. The artificial reefs in this context...

Alongshore currents are currents parallel to the coastline. In coastal areas they are driven by a combination of wave and tidal forcing. In this study, the validity of the non-hydrostatic, wave-flow model SWASH to predict these currents is investigated. This is done by comparing model predictions with measurement observations. Observations were...
