Coastal Engineering still presents significant levels of uncertainty, much larger for sediment transport and morphodynamics than for the driving hydrodynamics. Because of that there is still a need for experimental research that addresses the water and sediment fluxes occurring at multiple scales in the near shore and for some of which there are still not universally accepted equations or closure sub-models. Large scale bed tests offer the possibility to obtain undistorted results under controll...
