Summary:
"This book discusses coastal defense measures, which have not improved in the past few decades, and better alternatives. It emphasizes the existence of stable bays in coastal geomorphology and their use in coastal stabilization. The conventional measures for saving beaches, such as seawalls, groins, offshore breakwaters, and renourishment, are discussed in detail, followed by an alternative known as headland  Read more...

Abstract:

Random waves are the most important constituent of the sea environment, making the design of maritime structures very different from that of land structures. This book explores the concept of  Read more...

It emphasizes the existence of stable bays in coastal geomorphology and their use in coastal stabilization. The conventional measures for saving beaches, such as seawalls, groins, offshore breakwaters, and renourishment, are discussed in detail, followed by an alternative known as headland control. Many types of coast, and the respective defense measures, are discussed, especially for eroding beaches downcoast of harbors with long breakwaters. The formation of offshore bars during storms is examined and the design of stable recreational breaches is demonstrated. Practical design problems are discussed in all cases. Many issues requiring attention in coastal engineering are also outlined."--Jacket." ;
