One of the best volumes available today on coastal hydraulics. This is the second, significantly updated and revised, edition of the book. The content of the publication opens with the basic information on the subject including motion equations applicable to the ideal fluids, sediment transport and viscous flow. This chapter is followed by the one on tides and currents - here the readers will get the information about the equilibrium tide, tidal streams and bores, numerical analysis methods etc.
The next chapter deals with the waves and covers the linear theory, diffraction and reflection of waves, longshore currents and their generation, ship waves, wind waves and other important aspects. The chapter devoted to the coastal sediment transport will tell readers about the suspended and bed load, littoral drift and roughness length, longshore drift, beach nourishment etc.
The rest of the chapters of the volume address such areas as coast and bed morphology, coastal protection and its planning, waves and structures including wave characteristics and associated forces, application of the spectral analysis method to wave loadings, and data acquisition through current and wave measurements, measurement of the sediment movement and littoral drift, and hydrographic surveys.
