Coastal Structures 2003

Results from new and ongoing research into all aspects of coastal structures were presented by the international community at the conference held in Portland, Oregon, August 26-30, 2003. This proceedings, Coastal Structures 2003, contains 110 papers that present the state of knowledge and practice in coastal structure design, construction, and maintenance. The papers are divided into the following sections: (1) rubble mound coastal structures; (2) composite, vertical walled, and other coastal structures; (3) wave run-up and overtopping; (4) waves and structures; (5) shore protection; and (6) case studies. Special topics focus on general design, life-cycle or performance-based design, wave run-up and overtopping results related to the CLASH research program, as well as wave and current hydrodynamics in and around structures and innovative shore protection structures. Coastal engineers will find a wide range of design guidance, practical experience, and innovative solutions discussed within these papers.
