Coastal Structures

Coastal structures are an important component in any coastal protection scheme. They directly control wave and storm surge action or to stabilize a beach which provides protection to the coast, majorly comprises. Structural and Soft Engineering Techniques. Worldwide investigations like Designing Artificial Reefs will stabilise the Biodiversity. Sloping dykes in the forms of designing gentle slopes type coastal dykes to minimise environmental damage when constructing and maintaining buildings and other public amenities in coastal areas. Protect infrastructure from flooding due to high water levels, erosion, and impact from waves and currents Protect boat traffic by reducing waves and wave impact. Stabilize navigation channels by reducing sedimentation, inlet migration. Reduce erosion by stabilizing shorelines/beaches. Enhance recreation, beauty. Coastal Structures Functional Areas, Coastal armouring. Structures resist waves, scour, overtopping. Beach or soil stabilization structures hold upland sediment, retard alongshore transport. Navigation structures resist waves, currents, sedimentation.
