The ICE Coasts, Maritime Structures and Breakwaters conference series, sponsored by the ICE for over thirty years, is the leading international forum for the presentation of the latest developments in coastal and maritime engineering. The eleventh conference, Realising the Potential, was held in Liverpool from 5th to 7th September 2017.
Across the three days, it was attended by over 300 delegates and saw 90 papers presented.
This book contains the full discussion notes from each session at the conference as well as 'innovation spotlights' detailing short presentations on new and developing practices and processes. The topics for 2017 focused on describing the design, construction, analysis and performance of a wide range of maritime structures.
The contents contain the latest research and developments and up-to-date guidance and innovations as well as practical lessons learned from experience.
The 90 papers presented here cover a diverse range of topics including- construction in ports- working in marine environments- challenges at the coast- coastal developments- breakwater armour- ecological aspects of design- developments in overtopping- waves on structures. With contributions from those in industry and academia and featuring a wide range of international case studies, these proceedings offer an essential reference for coastal engineers and professionals.
