Conference information: 17th International Conference on Coastal Engineering | Sydney, Australia | March 23-28, 1980

Document Type: Book - Proceedings


One hundred eighty-six papers presented at the seventeenth coastal engineering conference are included in these three volumes. There are four parts: 1) Theoretical and observed wave characteristics, 2) coastal sediment problems, 3) coastal structures and related problems, and 4) coastal, estuarine and environmental problems. Part one explores recent advances in wave theories, orbital velocities in irregular waves, and laboratory generation of long waves. Subjects in the second part include sediment flux through reef-lagoon systems, sediment dispersal, natural beaches, and dune dynamics. Part three examines coastal pipelines, seawalls, marinas and breakwaters, and part four explores estuarine modeling, tidal channels, mooring forces induced by passing ships, and port planning. The conference was sponsored by the ASCE Coastal Engineering Research Council, the ASCE Waterway, Port, Coastal and Ocean Division, and the Australian Institution of Engineers.
