Abstract

Beach nourishment using 87,000 m3 of gravel with grain size between 2.5 and 13 mm was experimentally carried out until April 2008 at the Jinkoji coast, which faces the Pacific Ocean and is surrounded by artificial headlands. Monitoring surveys, a boring test and core sampling on the beach were carried out to investigate the mechanism of the formation of gravel layers and their effect on protecting the foot of the seawall. It was found that the nourishment gravel was deposited with a slope of 1/8 at the foot of the seawall, thus providing some protection to the seawall, and that the nourishment gravel was stably deposited without offshore discharge.
