9780784401965: History and Heritage of Coastal Engineering: A Collection of Papers on the History of Coastal Engineering in Countries Hosting the International Coastal Engineering Conference 1950-1996

Coastal engineering is a relatively new discipline within the field of civil engineering. The first International Coastal Engineering Conference was convened in Long Beach, California, in 1950. The theme of the twenty-fifth or "silver" ICCE held in Orlando, Florida, in September, 1996, was History and Heritage of Coastal Engineering to honor those individuals and institutions contributing to the foundations of the discipline. As part of the celebration at this premier technical conference, this volume was conceived to document the history of coastal engineering in the 15 countries which have hosted the ICCE. Coastal engineering works have been conducted for hundreds and even thousands of years for port development, coastal hazard protection, and reclamation of land from the sea. The needs of the different countries and the approaches taken are unique and document the evolution of society and its relation with the coast from 15 perspectives. The reader will be fascinated by the ingenuity and resolution of our ancestors, as well as the accomplishments made in modern times as documented in this volume rich with information, colorful anecdotes, and citations to many almost-forgotten original references worthy of re-examination.
