Nearshore Berms: An Evaluation of Prototype Designs
The US Army Corps of Engineers continually seeks new ways to use clean dredged material. In recent years, placement of this material in shallow water to construct nearshore berms has become...

Performance of Beach Nourishment at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
Between May and August, 1990, approximately 2.34 million cubic yards of sand were placed along 35,000 feet of the Atlantic shoreline of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The project...

Berm Placement Planning Study at Breton Island, Louisiana
This paper identifies tools that are being utilized to determine the most environmentally beneficial location for a nearshore berm to be constructed at Breton Island, Louisiana. The computer...

Design of Pre-excavated Scour Hole Below Flip Bucket Spillways
A number of tests were performed on a model-scale flip bucket spillway with a gravel-bed plunge pool in order to develop equations to describe the geometry of the scour hole created by...

Cement-Stabilized Soil for Coal Retaining Berms

Experience with Beach Fill Equilibration and Recommended Design Guidelines
Well documented engineering procedures suitable for determining design berm dimensions subsequent to profile equilibration appear to be lacking. Failure to properly account for cross-shore...

Hydrodynamic Forces and Evolution of a Nearshore Berm at South Padre Island, Texas

Processed-Snow Foundation Design at the Summit of the Greenland Ice Cap
The design and construction of a processed-snow foundation berm for an elevated building located at the summit of the Greenland Ice Cap is described. Weather conditions and design provisions...

Numerical Modeling of Storm-Induced Beach Erosion, Folly Beach, South Carolina, Beach Fill Alternatives
The U.S. Army Engineer District, Charleston (SAC), is developing a National Economic Development (NED) Plan for providing northeaster and hurricane storm protection for the municipality...

Processes Controlling the Retreat of the Isles Dernieres, A Louisiana Barrier-Island Chain
The Isles Dernieres is a low-lying, transgressive barrier-island chain situated about 150 km west of the modern Mississippi delta. Much of the Isles Dernieres consists of highly dissected...

Seacliff Retreat and Coarse Sediment Yields in Southern California
Seacliffs are erosional slopes. They form when a receding shoreline impinges on coastal terraces, hills, or mountains. Wave-caused erosion at the base of a seacliff controls its long-term...

Design Guidance for Nearshore Berm Construction
Construction of nearshore berms has been gaining acceptance as a cost effective beneficial use of dredged material. This paper presents a systematic methodology for design and evaluation...

Environmentally Sustainable Development: A Concept in Action
Environmentally sustainable development denotes a balanced approach with appropriate consideration for environmental protection. The successes achieved in the development of five diverse...
