The phenomenon of coastal erosion in our country is becoming more and more common in recent years, as people’s attention to coastal erosion issues, scholars and experts have proposed all kinds of beach protection policies and structural measures and put them into practice. In order to study changes of profile after beach maintenance, we take Yingkou Hebe gravel beach as an example, using the normal integral model to do the dimensional gravel beach test. The experiment proved that gravel beach with filling stone at different return periods after wave effect can reach an unstable equilibrium cross-sectional form ,with the longer duration of the wave’s action, the whole beach profile was showing an erosion form: seaward from the shore, formed a certain sand deposit on the berm platform and slowly goes to the shore, from the middle of the slope to the berm edge has the biggest erosion, easy to form a bunker, the erosion to the lower part of the slope was smaller and gradually reduce towards the sea. Additional riprap in front of seashores has little effect on the change of beach profile.
