Coastal Structures and design – Book your place here
5 August 2021
This course is aimed at coastal practitioners who need to know more about coastal engineering design, including standards, criteria and calculations for conceptual design.
What does the course cover?
Attending this one-day course will develop your knowledge of coastal engineering design, including criteria, calculations and conceptual design. You will also be introduced to the standards used to select design criteria, including loads, risk and lifetime considerations.
The course also provides information on the techniques used to undertake design calculations and will include advice on wave overtopping calculations.
By the end of the course you will understand how technical approaches can be applied, allowing coastal asset owners and planners to review coastal engineering reports and perform simple checks to verify design parameters.
