Basic Coastal Engineering, 3rd Edition offers the basics on
monochromatic and spectral surface wave mechanics, coastal water level
variations, coastal structures and coastal sedimentary processes. It also
provides the necessary background from which the reader can pursue a
more advanced study of the various theoretical and applied aspects of
coastal hydrodynamics and design.
This classic text offers senior and beginning post-graduate students in
civil and mechanical engineering or the physical and environmental
sciences a well-rounded introduction to coastal engineering. Engineers
and physical scientists who have not had the opportunity for formal
study in coastal engineering, but would like to become familiar with the
subject, will also benefit from this timely resource.
New material covered in this third edition includes:
Material on coastal processes including beach equilibrium profiles,
beach profile closure depth, mechanisms causing beach profile change, and
the characteristics and design of coastal entrances.
Material on the design of stone mound structures including low-crested
breakwaters, sensitivity of the Hudson equation for rubble mound
structure design, armor stone specification and the economic
implications of design wave selection.
Material on surface waves including vessel-generated waves, refraction
and diffraction of directional wave spectra and design wave selection
