Effective coastal engineering is expensive, but it is not as costly as neglect or ineffective intervention. Good practice needs to be based on sound principles, but theoretical work and modelling also need to be well grounded in practice, which is continuously evolving.

Conceptual and detailed design has been advanced by new industry publications since the publication of the second edition. This third edition provides a number of updates:
 
  • the sections on wave overtopping have been updated to reflect changes brought in with the recently issued EurOtop II manual
  • a detailed worked example is given of the calculation of extreme wave conditions for design
  • additional examples have been included on the reliability of structures and probabilistic design
  • the method for tidal analysis and calculation of amplitudes and phases of harmonic constituents from water level time series has been introduced in a new appendix together with a worked example of harmonic analysis
  • and a real-life example is included of a design adapting to climate change.
This book is especially useful as an information source for undergraduates and engineering MSc students specialising in coastal engineering and management. Readers require a good grounding in basic fluid mechanics or engineering hydraulics, and some familiarity with elementary statistical concepts.
