A multi-layer model is used to calculate time-dependent sediment velocity and concentration vertical profiles. This model, in which the differences in sediment transport at different distances from the bed are considered is intended both for the wave motion and steady flow. Numerical calculations were carried out for sediment transport during the wave crest and trough and total sediment transport as a sum of their absolute values. The model concept of variation in shear stress from the skin stress value above the bed to the stress value at the bed previously proposed for steady flow is extended here for the wave motion and verified by direct stress measurements. The calculations were carried out for mixed sand sediments with different grain size distributions including semi-uniform and poorly sorted grains. Comparison with the available small- and large -scale data from flumes and oscillating tunnels yields agreement typically within plus/minus a factor two of measurements.
