Basics of Coastal Engineering

Congratulations to our project manager Catherine Ricks, P.E. on her project case study featured in the cover story of Pile Buck magazine.

Pile Buck Basics Of Coastal Engineering Cover

Coastal engineering is a highly specialized type of engineering that is designed to address both natural and man-made changes in coastal zones. A well-considered coastal engineering solution can provide the structural and non-structural protection against coastal changes, and can maximize beneficial effects while minimizing adverse impacts of potential solutions to problematic areas on a coast line. Coastal engineering involves an application of both physical science and engineering, and requires a thorough understanding of the area in question to fully understand the nature and complexity of the problem at hand.
