Results from new and ongoing research into all aspects of coastal structures were presented by the international community at the Coastal Structures 2003 conference held in Portland, Oregon, August 26-30, 2003. This proceedings contains 110 papers that present the state of knowledge and practice in coastal structure design, construction, and maintenance. The papers are divided into the following sections: (1) rubble mound coastal structures; (2) composite, vertical walled, and other coastal structures; (3) wave run-up and overtopping; (4) waves and structures; (5) shore protection; and (6) case studies. Special topics focus on general design, life-cycle or performance-based design, wave run-up and overtopping results related to the CLASH research program, and wave and current hydrodynamics in and around structures and innovative shore protection structures. Coastal engineers will find a wide range of design guidance, practical experience, and innovative solutions discussed within these papers.

Proceedings of the 2011 Conference on Coastal Engineering Practice, held in San Diego, California, August 21-24, 2011. Sponsored by the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute of ASCE. This collection contains 90 papers that focus on developing solutions to coastal engineering problems and ensuring sustainable coastal development. Papers reflect an emphasis on practical experience and actual projects rather than specific technical and scientific aspects of coastal engineering. Topics include: case histories of coastal projects; sustainable coastal development; erosion and shoreline protection; coastal environment, water quality, and wetlands restoration; coastal hazards and risk management; coastal sediment processes; ports, harbors, and marine transportation; and local, state, and federal involvement in planning, design, and construction of coastal projects. These papers enhance the exchange of real-world experience and thus will be of interest to practicing coastal engineers.

These 83 papers from the February 2002 conference discuss coastal management, coastal storms, the impacts of climate change, shoreline change and response, and tsunamis and seismic events. The research focuses on identifying the forces and processes that contribute to coastal disasters, and developing strategies for preventing or minimizing the impact of these calamities. Among the topics are interpretation of probabilistic slope analysis for shoreline bluffs, coastal erosion processes and assessments of setback distances, and hurricane impact mapping. Case studies include a lakefront flood and storm emergency response plan for Chicago, a flood forecasting system for India, and property damage due to a storm surge in Japan.

Scour and erosion represent some of the most critical threats to maintaining infrastructure and quality of life throughout the world. As the human population expands, the responsibilities of engineers, scientists, and designers continue to increase. The demand for a creative approach to effective control of scour and erosion also becomes more pressing, requiring cross-disciplinary synthesis of information from the fields of hydraulic and geotechnical engineering. The papers in this Geotechnical Special Publication were presented at the 5th International Conference on Scour and Erosion, held in San Francisco, California, November 7 10, 2010. The conference was co-sponsored by the ASCE Geo-Institute and the ASCE Environmental and Water Resources Institute. The papers presented in this book examine the scour and erosion of hillside, fluvial, estuarine, and coastal environments at the interface of water, soil, and rock. This proceedings will be valuable to anyone working in the fields of geotechnical or environmental engineering.

This proceedings contains the papers presented at The 8th International Symposium on Practical Design of Ships and Other Floating Structures held in China in September 2001 - the first PRADS of the 21st Century. The overall aim of PRADS symposia is to advance the design of ships and other floating structures as a professional discipline and science by exchanging knowledge and promoting discussion of relevant topics in the fields of naval architecture and marine and offshore engineering. In line with the aim, in welcoming the new era, this Symposium is intended to increase international co-operation and give a momentum for the new development of design and production technology of ships and other floating structures for efficiency, economy, safety, and environmental production. The main themes of this Symposium are Design Synthesis, Production, Hydrodynamics, Structures and Materials of Ships and Floating Systems. Proposals for over 270 papers from 26 countries and regions within the themes were received for PRADS 2001, and about 170 papers were accepted for presentation at the symposium. With the high quality of the proposed papers the Local Organising Committee had a difficult task to make a balanced selection and to control the total number of papers for fitting into the allocated time schedule approved by the Standing Committee of PRADS. Volume I covers design synthesis, production and part of hydrodynamics. Volume II contains the rest of hydrodynamics, and structures and materials.
