Название: Breakwaters and closure dams
Авторы: d Angremond K., van Roode F.C.
Coastal protection is becoming increasingly important as global warming takes effect and sea levels rise. The UK and most other countries with coastlines are spending billions to protect their shores. Breakwaters and closure dams, an increasingly common form of coastal protection, are some of the most spectacular hydraulic structures that require some of the most complex engineering. Waves, tides and currents produce severe loading during and after construction that need to be addressed. Together breakwaters and closure dams provide the essential protection that modern coastal societies need in this time of rising sea levels and global climate uncertainty. Combining classical theory with modern practice, Breakwaters and Closure Dams presents a thorough grounding in these increasingly important structures and their use in the defence of coastlines. Delft University are the world-leaders in this field and the two authors bring a wealth of experience to bear to provide this indispensable text that explores all aspects of this increasingly important subject in a clear, accessible style.
