Abstract: This proceedings contains over 250 papers presented at the 22nd International Conference on Coastal Engineering which was held in Delft, The Netherlands, July 2-6, 1990. The book is divided into eight parts: 1) Characteristics of coastal waves and currents; 2) long waves and storm surges; 3) coastal structures; 4) the Dutch coast; 5) coastal processes and sediment transport; 6) coastal, estuarine and environmental problems; 7) ship motions; and 8) case studies. The individual papers include such topics as the sedimentation and beach nourishment. Special emphasis is given to case studies of completed engineering projects. With the inclusion of both theoretical and practical information, these papers provide the civil engineer and related fields with a broad range of information on coastal engineering.
