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...

Long Term Assessment of Beach Nourishment Project Performance
Long-term data on profile response, sediment distribution and wave information have been collected and analyzed for the Indialantic/Melbourne Beach beach nourishment project in order to...

Coastal Management's Role in Seismic Safety—Political Lessons from California's 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake
The San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) -- the first coastal management agency in the United States --has been involved in seismic safety since the Commission...

Headland Breakwaters in the Chesapeake Bay
The purpose of this paper is to document and evaluate the use of headland breakwaters in the Chesapeake Bay. Headland breakwater systems have been installed in the Chesapeake Bay since...

Movable-Bed Model Study of Storm-Induced Beach Fill Erosion at Ocean City Maryland
Movable-bed physical model scaling guidance has recently been validated for the case of turbulent-dominated sediment transport, such as occurs in the surf zone. The tests successfully...

Development of Optimum Beach Fill Design Cross-Section
Accurate beach profile surveys, wave information, and sediment data taken at Ocean City, Maryland provided an opportunity to evaluate four beach fill design alternatives using the beach...

Littoral Environmental Considerations of a Barrier Island in Beach Fill Design: Key Biscayne, Florida
An analysis and understanding of morphodynamic and littoral processes along a coastal shoreline is important in design of a beach fill project. Morphodynamic analysis should include a...

The Use of Aragonite as an Alternate Source of Beach Fill in Southeast Florida
The first full-scale use in the United States of imported aragonite sand for beach restoration was initiated at Fisher Island, Florida, in December, 1990. The project involved placement...

Who is Taking Out the Garbage?
Due to the shortage of landfill space and the increasing amount of waste being generated, current waste disposal techniques should be studied and revised. New methods should be implemented...

Potholes East Canal Headworks Project
The construction of 6.5 MW Potholes East Canal Headworks in Washington required near vertical excavation of about 100 ft (30 m) through the existing earthfill dam founded on columnar basalt....

Through-Flow Analysis for Rockfill Dam Stability Evaluations
Existing rockfill dams may have spillways that are not adequate to pass the current probable maximum flood (PMF), having been designed prior to the publication of the latest Hydrometeorological...

Overtopping Protection for A. R. Bowman Dam
Arthur R. Bowman Dam is a 245-foot-high (74.7-m) central-core rockfill dam located on the Crooked River in central Oregon. The probable maximum flood (PMF) would overtop the dam by 20...
