Summary:
The primary objective of this book is to provide a review of techniques available for the problems of wave propagation in regions with unever beds as they are encountered in coastal areas. The view taken is that the techniques should be useful for application in advisory practice. However, effort is put into a precise definition of the underlying physical principles, so that the validity of the methods used can be  Read more...

Abstract:

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  Read more...

The view taken is that the techniques should be useful for application in advisory practice. However, effort is put into a precise definition of the underlying physical principles, so that the validity of the methods used can be evaluated. Both linear and nonlinear wave propagation techniques are discussed. Because of its length, the book comes in two parts, part 1 covering primarily linear wave propagation, and part 2 covering on nonlinear wave propagation."@en ;
