This project studies the action of the waves on the sand. This research is oriented towards the solution of environmental problems such as coastal stability and landslides... the consequences, amongst other things, of poor understanding of the behaviour of complex materials such as sand interaction with water. It consists of a detailed study of the changes in behaviour of "granular" and "concentrate suspension” layers of sand in dynamic interaction with the ocean swell and in the presence of a current.
