Coastal Structures

  • Robert M. Sorensen

Abstract

Structures are constructed along the coast for a variety of purposes. Owing to its nature, there is strong pressure for development of the land and nearshore areas along the coast. There is a commensurate need to protect this development from damage by waves and storm surge. Coastal structures are an important component in any coastal protection scheme. Structures may be designed to act directly to control wave and storm surge action or secondarily to stabilize a beach which, in turn, provides protection to the coast.
