Sponsored by the Ocean Engineering Committee, Rubble Mound and Breakwater Committee, and Coastal Practice Committee of the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute of ASCE.This report is a compendium of 10 papers addressing the state-of-the-art advances in coastal structure design by internationally renowned authors. The papers focus on the tools and techniques used to analyze coastal processes and design engineering solutions to them.Topics include: coastal structure debate: public and policy aspects; international perspectives on coastal structure uses; geotechnical consideration for coastal structure design; numerical modeling as a design tool for coastal structures; physical modeling considerations for coastal structures; selection of a design wave height for coastal engineering; historical overview of rubble mound structure design and construction; advances in breakwater and revetment design; design aspects of groins and jetties; and application of coastal engineering in coastal zone management.
