About this book

This volume includes a host of methods for retaining sediment on the coastal areas where it is required. Examples of stabilization methods are taken from many countries, but the emphasis is on oceanic margins, headland control, erosion prevention and other defence measures. The future direction of coastal engineering is explored and a variety of coastal defence techniques are discussed. Also included are analyses of waves, beach processes, headland control, effects of maritime structures, alternatives to normal breakwaters and by-passing mechanisms.


Part 1 Waves: wave forecasting; wave transformations. Part 2 Beach processes: wave climate; lateral movement in surf zone; effects of tides; estuarine conditions; shingle beaches. Part 3 Engineering aspects of coastal geomorphology: crenulate shaped bays; barrier beaches. Part 4 Coastal defense: dune stabilization; new concept; cohesive soils; sea level rise. Part 5 Applications of headland control: salience behind single offshore breakwater; eroding embayment; alternative to groin field; beach renourishment. Part 6 Effects of maritime structures: scour due to short-crested waves. Part 7 Alternatives to normal breakwaters: barrier beach breakwaters; submerged platform breakwaters. Part 8 Bypassing mechanisms: land dredging plants; effect of jetties; jet pumping; wave reflection. Part 9 What direction coastal engineering: costs; waves; geomorphology; effects of maritime structures; bypassing mechanisms. (Part contents).
