Coastal engineering is a sub-discipline of civil engineering that incorporates elements of oceanography, marine geology, and environmental science with engineering design to address problems frequently involving coastal erosion, navigation, coastal flooding, wave impact, nearshore structures, and a wide range of coastal environmental issues. While hard structural approaches are still used when appropriate, coastal engineers are increasingly incorporating “soft engineering” solutions that incorporate nature-based and natural features. This webinar will discuss the range of typical coastal engineering problems and solutions, with an emphasis on general principles used by coastal engineers to analyze problems, assess alternative solutions, and deliver project designs ready for construction and implementation.
Dr. David Kriebel, P.E., is a Professor of Ocean Engineering at the United States Naval Academy and an independent consultant in coastal engineering. His research involves coastal hazards and his work has been incorporated into state and federal regulatory programs, design manuals, and design codes and standards. He has served on the Coastal Engineering Research Board, a federal advisory committee advising the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on coastal research, and he is past-President of the 4,000+ member Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute (COPRI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers. He is a registered Professional Engineer in Virginia and Alaska.
