Abstract

Estimating the amount of alongshore sediment transport (LSTR) is an extremely important task for coastal engineers and
coastal project managers to determine the probability of erosion and sedimentation in shores and ports. There are two popular
empirical formulas, CERC and Kamphuis, that can be used to calculate the potential of the LSTR rate of the coast. In this
study, sediment transport rate was calculated through experimental formulas and effective simulation in the Pozm Harbor is
located in Oman Sea in the coordination of 25 ° 21 ° N and 60 ° 17 ° E. Using wave data and Specification of sediment. Also,
the numerical simulation of this rate is calculated using numerical modeling. The numerical simulation results behind the
groin have been compared with the new hydrography of data was collected in 2017. Furthermore, numerical model has been
evaluated and general morphology has been identified. Based on sediment transport volumes calculated at Pozm harbor, a
suitable sediment transport rate can be achieved using this numerical model and the Kamphuis formula.
