Pelnard-Considère, R. (author)
Model tests on beach movement under wave action have shown that for small angles of wave incidence the transport is proportional to this angle. Under these conditions it is possible to determine analytically how the shape of the beach will alter in case when, on a straight coastline, a long structure has been built which completely eliminates...

This primer describes some of the causes of coastal erosion and tries to put into perspective their scale and consequences. There are no uniform causes, just as there are no uniform solutions. Erosion tends to be site-specific. Yet, with careful observation and measurement, a particular problem can be placed in context and draw from the...

Bakker, W.T. (author)
A mathematical theory about phenomena that occur if on a coastal area groynes are constructed. The theory is a simplification: it just deals with one aspect. The starting point in the coastal equation of Pelnard-Considère and a linearisation between the transport along the groyne and the size of the 'step' in the coastline at the groyne. The...

Lillevang, O.J. (author)
Wave and sand movement conditions must be right for a coastal groin to produce the beneficial effects it was built to achieve. Some groins produce no shoreline improvement; some groins prove harmful; some that act beneficially also cause harm elsewhere, and disputes follow. Design data are sparse, so experience and judgment become important...

The construction of relatively short groins to trap fillets of sand along coastal reaches characterized by prevailing littoral transport has become a well-known practice in coastal engineering. Less common, but often equally important, is the use of long groins to form artificial headlands which trap sand more or less permanently in artificial...

De Directie Waterhuishouding en Waterbeweging van de Rijkswaterstaat heeft op 18 juli 1966 het Waterloopkundig Laboratorium de opdracht gegeven een fundamenteel onderzoek in te stellen naar de werking van strandhoofden. Als stuurgroep bij dit onderzoek fungeert de Nederlandse Werkgroep Strandhoofden. De voor het onderzoek noodzakelijke...
