Experimental investigation on impact of the coastal Forest on reducing sediment transport rate at littoral Zone


Water engineering department at shahrekord university.


The emphasis of this study was to study the effects of waves, prediction and estimation of sediment transport rate at different coastal forest cover densities. Experiments were performed on the effectiveness of a mangrove tree to reduce tsunami energy, by a simulated polyethylene artificial shrub structure. The cover has a rigid structure (including 2 cm trunk system and 25 cm height and 1 cm root) and structure (including branch
