Wave-formed sediment ripples: transient analysis of ripple spectral development

Davis, Joseph P.; Walker, David J.; Townsend, Murray; Young, Ian R.


A new method has been developed that models the changes a wave-formed rippled sediment bed undergoes as it is actively evolving between two given equilibrium states due to a change in surface wave conditions. The transient analysis of rippled beds has received very little attention within the literature. Dynamic changes within ripple parameters have implications for the estimation of flow dissipation and sediment transport by changing the bottom roughness height. The method uses the spectral...[Show more]
