Abstract

This report describes field experiments undertaken to make measurements of both mean and turbulent velocities and concentrations over a sandwave and presents the results of the initial analysis of the data collected. The measurements were made to increase the understanding of the hydrodynamics of the flow above sandwaves leading to improved numerical modelling techniques, the use of which are particularly applicable to engineering studies of sediment movement affecting dredging or navigation.
