Outline and Purpose of the Course Fundamental items related to coastal engineering (i.e., coastal process, sediment transport, near shore current, shoaling, irregular wave, tsunami, storm surge, tidal wave, wave force)are to be lectured. Especially, sediment transport controlling physical environment significantly around coastal area is to be explained systematically together with river sediment transport.
Course Goals Our goal is systematic understanding of fundamental hydraulic phenomena around coastal zone which is indispensable for designing coastal environment.
Schedule and Contents Introduction to Coastal Engineering[1time]:
Introduction to coastal engineering with focusing on beach deformation

Small Amplitude wave theory[2times]:
Characteristics of small amplitude wave theory and its application are explained.

Wave Statistics / Wave Transformation[2times]:
Developing process of wind wave and expression method of irregular waves are explained. Mechanics of wave transformation is outlined.

Wave Force on Coastal Structures[1time]:
Several experimental formulae of wave force acting on coastal structures are introduced. Problems for stability of rubble mound is mentioned.

Design of Coastal Structures (Exercise)[1time]:
Exercise of design of coastal structures.

Introduction to Computational Design of Coastal Structures[1time]:
State-of-the-art numerical wave flume and its applications are explained.

Sediment Hydraulics[4times]:
Sediment hydraulics (i.e., basic characteristics, calculation of river-bed, bed load and suspended load, non-equilibrium sediment transport) is explained.

Nearshore Current / Coastal Sediment Transport[1time]:
Near-shore current due to wave deformation and resultant coastal sediment transport are outlined.

Tsunami and Storm Surge: Evacuation Planning under Coastal Disasters[1time]:
Characteristics of tsunami and storm surge are explained. Additionally, evacuation process and evacuation planning are introduced.

Achievement confirmation[1time]:
