Abstract: Because the design of beach stabilization structures requires analysis of the wave, current, and longshore transport environments as well as the coastal processes at a project site, this manual can only provide general guidance and design concepts in the area of beach stabilization. The manual also includes a compilation of the advantages and disadvantages of the various types of beach stabilization systems.
