Sensitivity Analysis for the Numerical Evaluation of Wind Effects on Buildings
The paper describes the sensitivity analysis carried out in the computational evaluation of wind effects on buildings by using a computer code named TWIST - Turbulent WInd Simulation Techniques....

A Community-Focused Routing and Siting Model for Hazardous Materials and Wastes
A model is presented that shippers, carriers and policy-makers can use to analyze routing problems for hazardous materials or routing-and-siting problems for wastes. Unlike many other...

Linking CZM With Local Planning and Zoning, Examples of Successful Harbor Management Planning
In September, 1988, the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council initiated the Rhode Island Harbors Management Project. This project calls for Rhode Island municipalities to establish...

The Tidewater Ecobotanical Garden: Lessons in Preserving, Restoring, and Interpreting Forested Coastal Wetlands
The West Neck Creek and North Landing River systems of the City of Virginia Beach are representative examples of the northern coastal margin of the Mid-Atlantic Tidewater. A 580 acre municipally-owned...

Coastal Zone Management, National Implementable Plan and Policy Development—A Case Study of Phuket Island
The Thailand Coastal Resources Management Project (CRMP) had been applied to Thailand since 1986 with aim to strengthen the Thai's capabilities in managing an integrated coastal...

Importance of the Surf Zone of Exposed Sandy Beaches for the Development of Juvenile Trachinotus (Pisces, Carangidae)
Sandy beaches dominate most of the tropical and temperate coastlines. Studies of nearshore ichthyofauna, in different regions of the world, have revealed the frequent occurrence of juvenile...

Recession of the Littoral Zone Cliffs of the Bristol Channel, U.K.
A recent investigation of the mass movement modified cliffs along the Bristol Channel coastline has been achieved by utilising ground survey data, historical and contemporary cartographic...

Scour Around Cylindrical Piles Due to Wave Motion in the Surf-Zone
The paper discusses the results of experimental tests to study scouring phenomena around cylindrical piles during a sea storm with reference to the modelling of a beach profile in the...

A Zoning Code Revision for Port Development—The Story of East Providence
The City of East Providence evaluated the effectiveness of the City's 30 year old zoning code and revised performance standards in the zoning text in light of possible marine...

Beach Change Magnitudes in Relation to Dynamic Phases on Dissipative Coasts
Dissipative-prone beaches are statistically and aethestically the most significant on open sea sandy coasts. These beaches owe their widespread occurrence to their temporal stability....

A Methodology for Coastal Monitoring
This paper sumarizes the routines which will be applied in order to create a methodology that will orient the 2nd phase of the Coastal Management Program in Brasil. The 1st phase, the...

Evidence for Eustatic Influence on Cenozoic Sedimentation of Coastal Washington and Oregon
Comparison of the absolute age boundaries of the West Coast biozonation with the Cenozoic global cycle chart indicates that 12 of the 15 zonal boundaries coincide with regressive sequence...

Rip Currents: Human Impact and Forecastibility
Annually, a large number of people in the United States drown in the surf zone. This study determines the number of surf drownings each year, mainly in Dade and Broward counties of southeast...

Turbulence Modelling of Suspended Sediment in the Surf Zone
A computational model is developed for the prediction of the wave period averaged turbulence structure under a breaking wave. The principal forcing function for the model is the generation...

Effects of Fluid Accelerations on Sediment Transport in Surf Zones
Two hydraulic model tests were run in a wave flume using irregular waves to obtain detailed data on the cross-shore variations of the pressure gradient on a 1:20 smooth, impermeable slope....

Cross-Shore Sediment Transport Under Irregular Waves in Surf Zones
A numerical model is proposed to predict the free surface elevation and depth-averaged velocity in the surf and swash zones for normally incident random waves. Comparison of the numerical...
