about

Numerical Models for Submerged Breakwaters: Coastal Hydrodynamics and Morphodynamicsdiscusses the practice of submerged breakwaters, an increasingly popular tool used as a coastal defense system because of their amenity and aesthetics as compared to common emerged beach protection measures.

The book is the perfect guide for experienced professionals who wish to keep abreast of the latest best practices or those who are entering the field and need a reference, explaining new and traditional numerical methodologies for designing submerged breakwaters and measuring their performance. In addition, the book provides case studies, examples, and practical methods for data selection and pre-processing, model setup, calibration, and analysis.



  • Case studies and worked-out examples illustrate different concepts and methods
  • Offers practical methods for Data Selection and Pre-Processing
  • Provides simplified prediction tools for practical applications
