Om Coastal and Ocean Engineering Practice
Successful coastal and ocean engineering projects rely on practical experience with technical tools and knowledge available to the engineer. Often, problems arise from projects that are too complex for theoretical description, which require that engineers exercise sound judgment in addition to reliance on past practical experience.This book focuses on the latest technology applied in design and construction, effective engineering methodology, unique projects and problems, design and construction challenges, and other lessons learned. In addition, unique practices in planning, design, construction, maintenance, and performance of coastal and ocean projects will be explored.Sample Chapter(s)Chapter 1: Impact of the Delta Works on the Recent Development in Coastal Engineering (3,026 KB)Contents:Impact of the Delta Works on the Recent Developments in Coastal Engineering (Krystian W Pilarczyk) Coastal Structures in International Perspective (Krystian W Pilarczyk)Coastal Structures: Action from Waves and Ice (Alf Tø rum)Kaumālapa'u Harbor: Design and Construction Challenges of an Exposed Deepwater Breakwater (Scott P Sullivan) Waterfront Developments in Harmony with Nature (Karsten Mangor, Ida Brøker, Peter Rand and Dan Hasløv)Risk-Based Channel Depth Design Using CADET (Michael J Briggs, Andrew L Silver and Paul J Kopp)Readership: Graduates and researchers in coastal, ocean, civil and geotechnical engineering.
