Motivation
Purpose of Research
• Design of the environmental parameters of a low
maintenance/maintenance-free rock swimming
pool, constructed as an extension of the existing
groyne.
• Conduct structural design and feasibility study of
the placement of the structure (to be done by Dan
Courtney).
• A facility for public usage as a mean for safe
swimming, disability access and recreational
activities.
• To reflect the rich culture of Cottesloe and the
history of the beach.

Objective
Goals of Research
Determine environmental and cultural
impacts of the placement of the Cottesloe
Rock Swimming Pool by delivering
environmental parameters of the system as
inputs for structural design and public
engagement techniques.

Conclusion
1. Higher waves are experienced near the tip
of the groyne and submerged reef area due
to depth-induced breaking
2. Higher waves near tip of groyne and lower
wave near side of pool can encourage
flushing cycle of the water inside the
structure
3. ELCOM results suggested there are
changes in current velocity near the bed
which can result in changing in shoreline
Recommendations
1. Continue SWAN realtime simulation for at least
6 months to gain enough data for 75-100 years
design period
2. Determine sedimentary transport rate using
Shield’s parameter and current outputs from
ELCOM
3. Preliminary geometric design can still be
performed using available logger and model
data
