Document Type: Journal Paper


A systematic approach to the analysis of bluff recession problems is presented. Three inter-related studies are normally required: beach development, toe protection, and stable slope development. An engineered solution to each of the three can lead to efficient stabilization of the bluff. An analysis of a typical problem east of Cleveland is included as an example.
