The purpose of this PDH continuing education course material is to familiarize engineers and contractors with various established methods of low cost shore protection. It is written for the individual who is knowledgeable in general civil engineering design and construction, but not a specialist in coastal engineering or shoreline protection.

In distinguishing between low cost and cheap, one should remember that practically any method of shore protection, if properly implemented, is expensive. Significant investments are required to achieve the durability needed to resist even small waves. Low cost simply means that the various measures are commensurate with the value of individual residential or commercial properties. The total cost of implementation will vary with the different alternatives, but in all cases, there should be a suitable (and affordable) range of solutions.

Engineer Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the shoreline erosion problem
  • Know the importance of shoreform
  • Knowledge of options including relocation, bulkheads, seawalls, revetments, breakwaters, groins, beach fills, vegetation, infiltration and drainage controls, slope flattening, perched beaches, structures and fills, and vegetation
  • Understanding of functional design
  • Understanding of structural design
  • Ability to apply shore protection methods
  • Permit requirements

This is a handout style continuing education PDH class that comprehensively reviews the publication.
