  • To provide for a list of significant design mistakes
  • To discuss case studies of damages referring to underlying design mistakes
  • To introduce design tools and practical rules of thumb
  • To perform class exercises

  • Introduction to coastal sediment transport
  • COMMON MISTAKES related to:
    • Design wave height
    • Design water level
    • Field data vs. theoretical guides
    • Sediment transport (capacity vs. actual transport, etc.)
    • Beach morphology
    • Nature-based (green) solutions vs. gray structures
    • Forces on structures (pipes, piles, sea walls, vessels, etc.)
