New Design Methods for Breakwater and Safety Evaluation

Coastal Engineering mainly deals with the interactions of water waves, currents, wind, and sea water level with coastal structures, sediments, pollutants and living species in coastal zone. The primary responsibility of a coastal engineer is to understand these interactions in order to develop engineering solutions for maintaining the health of coastal zone. To perform these tasks, coastal engineers need tools or models. This project seeks to develop new tools for engineers to use for design and testing of breakwaters. Breakwaters are engineered coastal structures that are commonly used for protecting coastal area from ocean waves, storm surge and flooding. Results from this project will help coastal engineers improve breakwater design leading to improved protection from coastal hazards.
