From the Back Cover:

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

examples.
