A one-day training course to introduce the key issues of coastal processes, and design methods for coastal structures.


The design of coastal structures needs to address many factors to ensure long-term effectiveness and stability. This includes an understanding of wave loads, wave characteristics, engineering design, and coastal processes.

This one-day course introduces the key issues of coastal processes and design methods for coastal structures, including seawalls, breakwaters, vertical walls, piers and jetties.

Course content

Key issues are explored in tutorial exercises.

Who should attend?

Those who need to know more about the fundamentals of coastal engineering and basic design aspects of structures such as breakwaters, shoreline revetments, seawalls, jetties. and elevated decks. This includes coastal engineers, managers and post-graduate researchers.

We recommend that the 'coastal processes and management' course is completed before taking this course.
