Abstract

A systematic approach for predicting the mean erosion and mean deposition rates of mud beneath random waves is derived. In this approach contributions from linear waves and wave-induced steady streaming are considered. Formulas valid for regular waves are applied, combined with describing the waves as a stationary Gaussian narrowband random process. The approach covers flow in the laminar, smooth turbulent and rough turbulent flow regimes. Examples are given, using data typical for field conditions representing laminar and smooth turbulent flow conditions, which are the most common flow regimes over mud beds.
