Introduction to Coastal Engineering
After participating in the course, you will be able to:
- Understand coastal engineering and apply your knowledge in solving problems of erosion and shoreline instability
- Access the design of various shore protection structure
- Anticipate the effect of climate change on Ocean, sea, lake coasts
Coastal engineering is fairly a new subject. The coastal problems are enlarged due to climate change as well as man kind interference in shore stability. Problem solving depends mainly on understanding. Although the course covers the design of shore protection structures, attendants may follow the procedure regardless of their background. There is no sophisticated algebra or complicated formulas.
Participants are expected to easily understand the fundamentals and to be interested in understanding phenomena of climate change and coastal problem solving. Field data and study cases may clearly illustrate the handling of coastal subjects.
- Waves and currents
- Sediment transport
- Effect of climate change on coastal stability
- Methods of shore protections
- Design of various shore protection structures
- Mathematical simulation and physical models
- Study and field cases
Who Should Attend
