            Historically, much harm has been done by well-meaning coastal engineering attempts, which seemed like good ideas on paper but which failed to allow for practical issues. For this reason, it is vital that theories and models are well grounded in practice. This second edition bring...s the models and examples of practice up to date. It has expanded coverage of tsunamis and generating energy from waves to focus both on the great dangers and the great opportunities which the ocean presents to the coastal zone. With an emphasis on practice and detailed modelling, this is a thorough introduction to all aspects of coastal processes, morphology and design of coastal defences. It describes numerous case studies to illustrate the successful application of mathematical modelling to real world practice. A must-have book for engineering students looking to specialise in coastal engineering and management.

            During the past 50 years, coastal Louisiana has suffered catastrophic land loss due to both natural and human causes. This loss has increased storm vulnerability and amplified risks to lives, property, and economies--a fact underscored by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Drawing Loui...siana's New Map reviews a restoration plan proposed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the State of Louisiana, finding that, although the individual projects in the study are scientifically sound, there should be more and larger scale projects that provide a comprehensive approach to addressing land loss over such a large area. More importantly, the study should be guided by a detailed map of the expected future landscape of coastal Louisiana that is developed from agreed upon goals for the region and the nation.

            A practical guide for the design of laboratory and field experiments, selection of appropriate instrumentation and experimental methodologies, as well as for conducting and analyzing experimental studies. Providing an end-to-end guidance to support experimentalists in the design ...and collection of the targeted data with prescribed accuracy. Currently, many studies are carried out in laboratories under less than ideal conditions that significantly influence the experimental outcomes (e.g., secondary currents, flume aspect ratio and development length, etc) and with instruments that are not always well tunned to the measurement environment (i.e., adequate temporal and spatial resolution for the flow under investigation). These limitations need to be understood and counteracted with appropriate measures. Practical information on many topics of experimentation presently can only be found in scientific papers or specialized monographs on laboratory practice. A one-stop-guide on all the above mentioned aspects is missing while long overdue. This book highlights the intrinsic connection between analytical and experimental research to illustrate the need for their complementary use. Essential guidelines for the appropriate design of experimental studies including the selection of the facility and instruments for specialized experiments will be described next. The book provides an introduction to the instrumentation available for various investigations. Conventional instruments will be briefly introduced in terms of their capabilities and limitations with proper guidance to the best available sources of information that describes them in full. The new generation of instruments will receive more attention through the descripton of their operating principles, capabilities and limitations and, where necessary, providing case studies for illustration purposes. Finally, the important aspects of uncertainty assessment, ancillary data processing, reporting, and efficient storing of

            Frontiers in Offshore Geotechnics III comprises the contributions presented at the Third International Symposium on Frontiers in Offshore Geotechnics (ISFOG, Oslo, Norway, 10-12 June 2015), organised by the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI). The papers address current and em...erging geotechnical engineering challenges facing those working in offshore construction, design and research. Keynote papers with authors from industry and academia describe the state-ofthe-art in practice and theory, and a further 191 peer-reviewed papers describe emerging research, new design techniques and recent case studies related to the frontiers of offshore geotechnical engineering. The themes of the papers include: - Geohazards; - Soil characterisation, modelling and testing techniques; - Shallow, caisson and pile foundation technology; - Anchoring solutions; - Well, conductor and pipeline geotechnics; - Jack-up unit spudcan behaviour, and; - Reliability-based and performance-based geotechnical design. New and existing design methods and industry best practices are presented together with innovative technologies and emerging research ideas derived from a variety of numerical and theoretical investigations, experimental programmes and field experience. Frontiers in Offshore Geotechnics III provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art reference for professionals and researchers in offshore, civil and maritime engineering and for soil mechanics specialists.
