This is volume three 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.

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.

Klimafolgen für Mensch und Küste

Die Frage nach den Folgen möglicher Klimaänderungen im deutschen Küstenraum ist einer der Schwerpunkte der Klimafolgenforschung. Die Untersuchung besonders empfindlicher Räume steht dabei im Vordergrund, weil sich hier vielfältige Nutzungsansprüche begegnen, die einer vorausschauenden Analyse und Planung bedürfen. Am Beispiel der touristisch intensiv genutzten Nordseeinsel Sylt wurde diese Problematik in einem mehrjährigen Forschungsprojekt untersucht und aus natur- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Aspekten beleuchtet. Die wichtigsten Ergebnisse der interdisziplinären "Fallstudie Sylt" sind in diesem Buch zusammengestellt. Die vielfältigen Analysen stellen die Grundlage für die Ableitung von Forschungs- sowie Handlungsempfehlungen im Sinne eines integrierten Küstenmanagements dar. Die beigefügte CD enthält eine Reihe von Karten, auf denen u. a. die Entwicklung der Insel in den letzten 800 Jahren sowie die mögliche Entwicklung bis zum Jahr 2050 aufgezeigt wird.

Dieses Kompendium ist sowohl als Nachschlagewerk, Formel- und Beispielsammlung für den Ingenieur im Beruf als auch als kurzes aber umfassendes Lehrbuch für Studenten des Bauingenieurwesens geeignet. Es behandelt die Grundlagen, wie sie in den Pflichtvorlesungen im Grundstudium gelehrt werden, aber auch den fortgeschrittenen Lehrstoff des Haupt- und Vertiefungsstudiums. Die Technische Hydraulik stellt dem planenden Ingenieur die hydromechanischen Berechnungsverfahren zur Verfügung, die in Wasserbau, Wasserwirtschaft, Abwassertechnik und Wasserversorgung benötigt werden. Besonders hervorzuheben an diesem Buch ist der Querschnitt durch das Gesamtgebiet und die einheitliche Behandlung des Sedimenttransports.

Theory and Applications of Ocean Surface Waves: Nonlinear aspects

This book is an expanded version of The Applied Dynamics of Ocean Surface Waves. It presents theoretical topics on ocean wave dynamics, including basic principles and applications in coastal and offshore engineering as well as coastal oceanography. Advanced analytical and numerical techniques are applied, such as singular perturbations. In this expanded edition, two chapters on recent developments have been added: one is on multiple scattering by periodic or random bathymetry, and the other is on Zakharov's theory of broad spectrum wave fields. New sections include topics on infragravity waves, upstream solitons, Venice storm gates, etc. In addition, there are many new exercises. Theory and Applications of Ocean Surface Waves will be invaluable for graduate students and researchers in coastal and ocean engineering, geophysical fluid dynamicists interested in water waves, and theoretical scientists and applied mathematicians wishing to develop new techniques for challenging problems or to apply techniques existing elsewhere.

The Beach Book

Science of the Shore

Waves and tides, wind and storms, sea-level rise and shore erosion: these are the forces that shape our beaches, and beach lovers of all stripes can benefit from learning more about how these coastal processes work. With animation and clarity, The Beach Book tells sunbathers why beaches widen and narrow, and helps boaters and anglers understand why tidal inlets migrate. It gives home buyers insight into erosion rates and provides natural-resource managers and interested citizens with rich information on beach nourishment and coastal-zone development. And for all of us concerned about the long-term health of our beaches, it outlines the latest scientific information on sea-level rise and introduces ways to combat not only the erosion of beaches but also the decline of other coastal habitats. The more we learn about coastline formation and maintenance, Carl Hobbs argues, the better we can appreciate and cultivate our shores. Informed by the latest research and infused with a passion for its subject, The Beach Book provides a wide-ranging introduction to the shore, and all of us who love the beach and its associated environments will find it timely and useful.

Shoreline superelevation, the difference between still-water lake elevation and shoreline expressions, reported in this publication shows that shoreline expressions of shallow closed-basin lakes define a surface that is neither essentially horizontal nor a still-water lake elevation.
