Course Details

Course Outline

5 days course

Introduction to Coastal Engineering and Resilient Infrastructure

  • Recognising the need for resilient infrastructure in coastal areas.
  • Identifying the problems that coastal regions face due to natural processes and climate change.
  • Key terminology and ideas in coastal engineering and infrastructure resilience discussed.

Coastal Processes and Hazards

  • Analyzing coastal processes such as wave, tide, current, and sediment movement.
  • Knowing how coastal risks like erosion, floods, and storm surge affect the environment.
  • Case studies illustrating the adverse effects of insufficient coastal engineering and infrastructure resilience.

Principles of Coastal Engineering

  • Concepts and Techniques of coastal engineering introduction.
  • Research on coastal buildings and how they preserve coastal areas.
  • Analysing the design factors for coastal buildings such as groins, seawalls, and breakwaters.

Resilient Infrastructure Design

  • Investigating the idea of designing resilient infrastructure in coastal areas.
  • Recognising the value of flexible and adaptive solutions for coastal infrastructure.
  • Examining novel coastal protection strategies, such as those based on nature and green infrastructure.

Coastal Engineering and Infrastructure Case Studies

  • Examining actual case examples of accomplished coastal engineering initiatives.
  • Examining the takeaways from past mistakes and how they may affect upcoming initiatives.
  • Looking at global best practices for resilient infrastructure and coastal engineering.
