AbstractA channel dredged at the mouth of a tidal inlet is subject to rapid shoaling because of longshore transport, but this shoaling is slower than would be computed from simple trapping of all the moving littoral drift. The reduction in shoaling rate is due to the bypassing of littoral drift which occurs simultaneously with shoaling. This report presents a systematic method for computing the rate of shoaling in channels subject to shoaling with bypassing. The method also permits estimates of the effect of the dredged channel on the downdrift beaches.
