Coastal Processes and Management
01 Oct 2017 • Wallingford, United Kingdom
Abstract:
Course dates in October 2017 to be confirmed. This introductory course, relevant to engineers, coastal landowners, regulators and operating authorities, combines lecture with hands-on exercises and explores the history, processes and modelling of changes at the coastline. Delegates will gain practical advice that can be directly implemented into the design methods for coastal engineering and management schemes. Each topic is supported with real life case studies allowing delegates to explore the problems which may arise in a project and the various ways to overcome them. This course covers the theory and principles necessary for all those at the start of their coastal management and engineering careers. Course content Coastal management planning - An overview of the reasons for and history of changes and management of coastlines., Waves and tides - An introduction and requirements for coastal management., Beach sediment transport/ morphology processes., Planning coastal management and engineering schemes:  An introduction to options, appropriate methods and assessing the potential effects of such works.. Learning outcomes At the end of the course participants will understand: the types of problems that need to be solved in coastal engineering and management;, how wave conditions, tidal flows and levels and their joint occurrence can be evaluated;, how coastlines of different types have evolved and are likely to change in the future;, how alternative methods of reducing risks of erosion or flooding are planned and designed;, issues relating to the design, performance, sustainability and effects of any type of infrastructure that needs to be engineered with knowledge of coastal processes.. Course tutors Alan Brampton, with over 45 years’ experience in coastal management; co-author of CIRIA beach management manual, the SNH dune erosion management manual and author of the reports that defined coastal cells around the UK, has outstanding experience and knowledge to support the topics in this course. Belen Blanco, co-creator of the course, has over 15 years’ experience in numerical and physical modelling and extensive practice in leading classroom training; she has project managed multiple regional management plans and contributes to the development of several models of coastal (morphology) change. The two course leaders are joined by other members of HR Wallingford staff who will deliver sessions covering their specific areas of expertise.

3rd International Conference on Protection against Overtopping
06 Jun 2018 - 08 Jun 2018 • Grange-over-Sands, United Kingdom
Abstract:
This conference follows the very successful Protections 2016 event, the 2nd International Seminar on Dam Protection against Overtopping which took place in September, 2016 in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA. The inaugural event in this conference series was held during November 2014 in Madrid Spain and attended by participants from 20 countries. The increasing demand for dam, levee and seawall safety and flood protection has motivated new research and advancements and a greater need for cost-effective measures in overtopping protection as a solution for overtopping concerns at levees, dams and seawalls. This conference will bring together leading experts from practice, research, development, and implementation for two days of knowledge exchange followed by a technical tour of the Lake District including some of the impressive dams which can be found there.
