  • The effect of air bubbles on optical backscatter sensor measurements under plunging breaking waves 

    Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Alsina Torrent, José María; Van der Zanden, Joep; Van Der A, Dominic; Ribberink, Jan; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2020-08)
    Article

    Accurate suspended sediment concentration measurements are key to understand and quantify the sediment transport patterns in the surf and swash zones. One of the most widely used instruments to collect suspended sediment ...
  • The evolution of mobile bed tests: a step towards the future of coastal engineering 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Thorne, Peter D.; Eiff, Olivier; Lacaze, Laurent; Hurther, David; Barraud, P.A.; Musumerci, Rosaria; Vousdoukas, Michalis; Sancho, Francisco (2013)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Coastal Engineering still presents significant levels of uncertainty, much larger for sediment transport and morphodynamics than for the driving hydrodynamics. Because of that there is still a need for experimental research ...
  • The influence of wave groups and wave-swash interactions on sediment transport and bed evolution in the swash zone 

    Alsina Torrent, José María; Van der Zanden, Joep; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Ribberink, Jan (2018-10-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Large scale laboratory measurements of sediment dynamics in the swash zone are presented. Two bichromatic wave group conditions were generated, having the same energy content but different wave group period (Tg = 15.0 s ...
  • Wave and flow response to an artificial surf reef: laboratory measurements 

    Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Trung, Le Hai; van Ettinger, Hendrik Dirk; Reniers, Ad; Uijttewaal, Wim (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2009-11-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Waves and currents are essential elements in the design of an artificial surfing reef ASR. ASRs are primarily designed to optimize the surfing conditions i.e., increase the surfability of the incoming waves possibly in ...
  • Wave boundary layer hydrodynamics and sheet flow properties under large-scale plunging-type breaking waves 

    Fromant, Guillaume; Hurther, David; Van der Zanden, Joep; Van Der A, Dominic; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; O'Donoghue, Tom; Ribberink, Jan (Wiley, 2019-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Wave boundary layer (WBL) dynamics are measured with an Acoustic Concentration and Velocity Profiler (ACVP) across the sheet flow-dominated wave-breaking region of regular large-scale waves breaking as a plunger over a ...
  • Wave field behind impermeable low crested structures 

    Buccino, Mariano; Vicinanza, Diego; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Calabrese, Mario (2009-01-13)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Hydraulic performance of Low Crested Structures have been widely studied both theoretically and through experimental analyses; yet, only few indications are available on the interaction between the main transmission modes ...
  • Wave propagation over posidonia oceanica: large scale experiments 

    Prinos, P; Stratigaki, Vasiliki; Manca, Eleonora; Losada, Iñigo; López Lara, Javier; Sclavo, Mauro; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Posidonia oceanica meadows are considered to be of high importance to the environmental conservation in the Mediterranean Sea, supporting a highly biodiverse habitat and protecting from coastal erosion. In the CIEM wave ...
