The United Nations estimate that by 2004, in excess of 75% of the world's population will live within the coastal zone. These regions are therefore of critical importance to a majority of the world's citizens. The coastal zone provides important economic, transport, residential and recreational functions, all of which depend upon its physical characteristics, appealing landscape, cultural heritage, natural resources and rich marine and terrestrial biodiversity. This resource is thus the foundation for the well being and economic viability of present and future generations of coastal zone residents The pressure on coastal environments is also being exacerbated by rapid changes in global clima...

Basic Coastal Engineering

The second edition (1997) of this text was a completely rewritten version of the original text Basic Coastal Engineering published in 1978. This third edition makes several corrections, improvements and additions to the second edition. Basic Coastal Engineering is an introductory text on wave mechanics and coastal processes along with fundamentals that underline the practice of coastal engineering. This book was written for a senior or first postgraduate course in coastal engineering. It is also suitable for self study by anyone having a basic engineering or physical science background. The level of coverage does not require a math or fluid mechanics background beyond that presented in a typ...

The science and technology of coastal and ocean engineering are closely related to harbour and fishery engineering, because they share a common basic knowledge. However, whereas various publications of coastal engineering, harbour engineering, and ocean engineering have described just the knowledge in their own respective fields, an interrelated and systematic presentation linking them together has yet to be attempted. This book is the first attempt to systematically combine the fields of coastal, ocean, harbour, and fishery engineering from an engineering viewpoint backed by hydrodynamics. Understanding the interaction of waves with structures and sediment, and predicting the associated res...

Handbook of Coastal Engineering

Aims to equip you with the tools to apply the various research, regulations, and design methods to almost all coastal engineering challenges. This book provides information on how to: apply wave equations; control sediment transport and protect beaches; design wave-resistant coastal structures; design and maintain navigation channels; and more.

History and Heritage of Coastal Engineering

Papers on the history of coastal engineering from the 25th International Coastal Engineering Conference, held in Orlando, Florida, September 1996.Ø This collection of 15 papers honors the individuals and institutions who contributed to the foundations of the coastal engineering discipline. Although coastal engineering is a relatively new discipline within civil engineering, coastal engineering works have been constructed for hundreds?thousands, even?of years for port development, coastal hazard protection, and reclamation of land from the sea. Different countries have different needs and devised different approaches. These papers, which document the evolution of society and its relation to coasts, are derived from the perspectives of 15 countries that have hosted the ICCE. Readers will be fascinated by the ingenuity and determination of our ancestors, as well as the accomplishments made in modern times. This volume is rich with information, colorful anecdotes, and citations to many almost-forgotten original references worthy of re-examination.

COASTAL ENGINEERING, SECOND EDITION

The present edition, with new title Coastal Engineering, is the enlarged and updated volume of the book origin-ally published under the title Coastal Hydrodynamics in 2012. The book provides an overview of world population and ocean resources, natural threats and man-made hazards, and their impact on coastal environment. It discusses the fundamentals of wind, waves, tides and fluid flow and describes commonly adopted wave theories in coastal engineering. The text explains the methods for estimating wave forces on coastal structures, procedures for the analysis of wave data, and sediment transport. Apart from the estimation of beach profile evolution and shoreline change, the book discusses k...

Coastal Engineering 2002

This book contains more than 300 papers presented at the 28th International Conference on Coastal Engineering, held in Cardiff, Wales, in July 2002. It is divided into five parts: coastal waves; nearshore currents, swash, and long waves; coastal structures; sediment transport; and coastal morphology, beach nourishment, and coastal management. The papers cover a broad range of topics, including theory, numerical and physical modeling, field measurements, case studies, design, and management. Coastal Engineering 2002 provides engineers, scientists, and planners with state-of-the-art information on coastal engineering and coastal processes.
