AbstractThe items of investigation include wave induced current, wave height, beach profile, shoreline change, etc. The investigation has been performed seasonally. After the construction of submerged breakwaters, a tombolo was generated behind the submerged breakwaters. This caused beach erosion in the nearby areas. Rip currents are mainly generated near submerged breakwaters, which plays a role in the transportation of sand in the offshore direction. In order to analyze the sand movement, numerical analysis was conducted. The analysis indicated that a strong rip current is generated near submerged breakwaters.
