This is volume one of a three volume set.The "Shore Protection Manual" is in three volumes. Volume I describes the physical environment in the coastal zone starting with an introduction of coastal engineering, continuing with discussions of mechanics of wave motion, wave and water level predictions, and finally littoral processes.Volume II translates the interaction of the physical environment and coastal structures into design parameters for use in the solution of coastal engineering problems. It discusses planning, analysis, structural features, and structural design as related to physical factors, and shows an example of a coastal engineering problem which utilizes the technical content of material presented in all three volumes.Volume III contains four appendixes including a glossary of coastal engineering terms, a list of symbols, tables and plates, and a subject index.

Full color publication. The Coastal Engineering Manual (CEM) assembles in a single source the current state-of-the-art in coastal engineering to provide appropriate guidance for application of techniques and methods to the solution of most coastal engineering problems. The CEM provides a standard for the formulation, design, and expected performance of a broad variety of coastal projects. These projects are undertaken to provide or improve navigation at commercial harbors, harbor works for commercial fish handling and service facilities, and recreational boating facilities. As an adjunct to navigation improvements, shore protection projects are often required to mitigate the impacts of navigation projects. Beach erosion control and hurricane or coastal storm protection projects provide wave damage reduction and flood protection to valuable coastal commercial, urban, and tourist communities. Environmental restoration projects provide a rational layout and proven approach to restoring the coastal and tidal environs where such action may be justified, or required as mitigation to a coastal project's impacts, or as mitigation for the impact of some previous coastal activity, incident, or neglect. As the much expanded replacement document for the Shore Protection Manual (1984) and several other U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) manuals, the CEM provides a much broader field of guidance.

Low Cost Shore Protection

A Property Owner's Guide

This book is intended for property owners whose land is located on sheltered waters protected from direct action of open ocean waves. As a reader, you may be personally concerned about some aspect of shore protection because your house or cottage is threatened by continued erosion or a sandy beach you once enjoyed as disappeared. Whatever your personal circumstances, it is probably small comfort to know that your plight is shared by many others. In trying to solve your problem, you may have sought the advice of others or observed the means they have used to combat erosion problems. Or, you may have been approached by a local firm trying to sell either construction services or some shore protection device. While such resources may sometimes achieve satisfactory results, you and a majority of others are probably reading this because you have been unable to solve your problems and have suffered substantial capital losses in the process. If such is the case, then this report is for you.

Introduction to Bed, Bank and Shore Protection provides students and professional engineers with the understanding and guidance to prevent the erosion of movable beds, banks and shorelines. In a world of rising sea levels and extreme weather conditions, these skills are increasingly important to the engineer as well as the wider community. The book starts with the underlying scientific principles behind hydraulics and soil mechanics and applies them to common practical situations for the protection of coastal and river beds, banks and shores. Based on the author's twenty years of experience, this blend of theory and practice provides the reader with useful knowledge that can be applied to a wide range of situations for the protection of the environment.

Dynamics of Marine Sands

A Manual for Practical Applications

The practical engineer looking for an urgent solution to a sediment-related project often finds that the results of the relevant academic research are published in unfamiliar language in publications that are not easily available. Dynamics of marine sands bridges the gap between academic research and practical applications by summarising the research results in a unified form, backed up with worked examples and case studies. This comprehensive new book presents methods for calculating the various hydrodynamic and sediment dynamic quantities necessary for marine sediment transport applications, and recommends the most appropriate methods to use for engineering projects.

Seawall Design focuses on all aspects of seawall design, from the broader issues of coastal management and other options for coastal defense and environmental assessment, to problem definition and project planning; data collection and interpretation; conceptual and detailed design; design for construction and maintenance; and materials to be used. The reader is guided with respect to the range of potential problems, their definition, and possible solutions, as well as the key functional requirements of a seawall and the methods of design to take due account of engineering and environmental and economic considerations. Comprised of eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of the principal function of a seawall and the guidelines for seawall design covering all relevant considerations including environmental aspects, construction, and long-term management. The discussion then turns to regular monitoring of coastal management, options for coastal defense, and the impact of phased works on coastal management. Subsequent chapters deal with project planning and environmental aspects of seawall design; data collection, analysis, and interpretation; and overall concept and types of seawall structure;. Design considerations for a seawall are described, starting with hydraulic performance, the overall stability of the embankment and coastal cliffs as well as structural loads. The book concludes with an assessment of financial and economic considerations in the planning, design, construction and maintenance of seawalls. This monograph is intended for engineers involved in the planning and design of seawalls.

Part II "Coastal Hydrodynamics" is organized to lead the reader from the fundamental principles of linear and other wave theories, including irregular waves and spectral analysis, to ocean wave generation and through the process of transformation as the wave approaches and reacts with the coastline. Analysis of water level variations including astronomical tides and storm surges are presented along with the hydrodynamics of coastal inlets and harbors are included in other chapters.

Low Cost Shore Protection

A Guide for Engineers and Contractors

The purpose of this book is to familiarize engineers and contractors with various established methods of low cost shore protection. It is written for the individual who is knowledgeable in general civil engineering design and construction, but not a specialist in coastal engineering or shoreline protection. The methods described in this book are usually appropriate for use only in sheltered waters. That is, they are generally not intended for open coast sites where they would be exposed to the undiminished attack of large oceanic waves.
