In beach nourishment using gravel, the macadam gravel is used so that the sharp-pointed shape of gravel is of concerned. In this study, the change in the shape of gravels due to wave abrasion was investigated. Gravel samples were collected from the Jinkoji and Akashi coasts in Ibaraki Prefecture, where beach nourishment using coarse materials have been carried out since 2005, and grain size and roundness were measured. It was found that roundness of gravels with an initial value of 0.2 converged to 0.4-0.5 within four years and nine months. Due to the abrasion test of sampled gravels without steel bowls, the content of gravel was as high as 92% of all the volume after the rotation of 1200 times.
