Drag and mass coefficients corresponding to Stokes' fifth - order theory have been determined from previously published wave and wave - force data. Comparisons between statistical distributions for fifth-order and corresponding first order coefficients have been made for varying wave steepnesses. For other existing wave data, from which the...

For many years the Pacific Gas and Electric Company has been measuring water temperatures in the ocean and other bodies of water in connection with the design of thermal power plants. This subject is timely because of the widespread interest being shown in the field. Since the beginning of this temperature measurement work, various methods and...

Construction methods utilized by the Portland District during its 80-year experience record of building rubblemound jetties are discus sed, along with design criteria that have been developed by the Corps of Engineers for required weight of individual stones in primary cover layer of rubblemound jetties. Results of the 1963 and 1964 continuing...

This is a presentation of recent computer results from a previously published theory of the deformation of solitary waves on a sloping beach. No attempt will be made here to review or derive the pertinent equations, and only those geometrical aspects of the theory will be introduced which are necessary for interpretation of the results. The...

Construction of two hurricane barriers to protect the coastal communities of New Bedford and Fairhaven, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island is nearly complete. The projects include navigation gates, pumping stations, street closures, cooling water canal, and numerous utility gates. Operation of these various features introduces many...

The erosion of sand beaches due to oscillatory water particle motion of non-breaking waves can be of importance, particularly where such a beach is fronted by a sea wall supported on spread foundation. Laboratory study was conducted with natural beach sand; waves were generated mechanically. Geometric variables included the inclination of sea...

By-passing by natural action is mentioned with special reference to Florida Inlets and to some other inlets in the United States and abroad. Natural by-passing at harbors on open shores is dealt with briefly. Present status of by-passing plant operations in Florida is reviewed. Inasmuch as it is evident that by-passing plants - partly because of...

In m.any design problem.s the sea state is specified as part of the design criteria. For offshore structures it is important to know the maximum. probable wave height and the maximum. probable wave force which might be experienced during the life expectancy of the structure, for example the 50 or 100 year wave height and period and the 50 or 100...

This paper presents problems associated with restoring and expanding a small boat basin at Cordova, Alaska following the Alaskan earthquake of 27 March 1964 . It Shows that even under very adverse conditions, work can proceed and a workable result can be obtained . The paper is primarily non-technical but lessons learned here may be of use to...

The purpose of this paper is to present the hydraulic problems relating to the computation of hurricane surge, hurricane waves, runup of the waves for providing hurricane flood protection at Texas City, Texas, as well as the effects of rainfall upon the protected area during periods of normal and high tides. The problems of providing protection...

This paper traces the history of dredging from a primitive dredge invented by Leonardo da Vinci to the most modern and powerful equipment. Emphasis is given to the modern hopper dredge and recent development in connection with the use thereof. The possibility of application of hopper dredges to beach nourishment work is discussed with an account...

The Conference on Coastal Engineering at Long Beach was conceived originally as a local meeting of engineers and scientists interested in shoreline problems and was sponsored by the University of California. It early became evident that there was widespread interest in the subject and that the program should be planned on a more ambitious scale....
