Abstract

It is customary to use empirical or semi empirical formulae for the calculations of longshore currents generated by obliquely incident waves. Recently Longuet-Higgins derived a simple analytical expression for the longshore current profiles generated by obliquely incident waves on beaches with constant slope bed profiles. The Longuet-Higgins approach is extended for the case of beaches with curved bed profiles. The resulting equation of motion is solved in closed form and generalized analytical expression for the longshore current profile is obtained. (A)
