Thoroughly updated and expanded, this introductory text/reference is the only one of its kind to offer the basics on surface wave mechanics and coastal processes along with the fundamentals of coastal engineering analysis and design. Focusing on the physical rather than environmental, political or economic aspects of the coastal zone, Basic Coastal Engineering, 2e. aims to provide a background from which the reader can pursue a more advanced study of the various theoretical and applied aspects of coastal hydromechanics and coastal engineering design.1.2 Coastal Engineering Attempts to solve some coastal zone problems such as beach erosion and the functional and ... of remarkable concepts in working with natural forcesaquot; were constructed as early as 1000-2000 B.C. Coastal works have ... meteorology, fluid mechanics, electronics, structural mechanics, and others.
