Overview

"Coastal Engineering: Processes, Theory and Design Practice is the only book providing a thorough introduction to all aspects of coastal processes, morphology and design of coastal defences. The use of detailed and state-of-the-art modelling techniques are an important theme of this book, and there are numerous case studies showing real-life examples where mathematical modelling has been applied through engineering judgment." With thorough coverage of the theory, and practical demonstration of the applications, Coastal Engineering: Processes, Theory and Design Practice is a must have for all students and engineers working in coastal management and engineering.
