This study is a preliminary experimental investigation on the evolution of a beach profile with and without a coastal drain system under the action of waves. The main objectives are to investigate the equilibrium profile of an initially steep artificial beach, and to investigate the effect of the coastal drain pipe system on the evolution of the drained beach. A wave flume of 45 m long, 1.6 m wide and 1.5 m deep, equipped with a flap-type wave maker was used to conduct the experiments. The beach material consists of uniform sand. The response of the beach was examined with regular waves of different wave heights.
