THE ADVANCE ON CHINA COASTAL ENGINEERING

Shileng Xie, Qihua Zuo, Xiping Dou

Abstract


An overall introduction is made in this paper to the progress of coastal engineering in the mainland of China during the last two decades, covering the regulation engineering and training effects of the deep navigation channel of the Yangtze River estuary and the Pearl River estuary; the coast protection standards, beach protection and reclamation engineering as well as various types of structures; ports construction and development; the key technology achievements in hydrodynamics of the silty and sand coasts and radial sandbanks; and the main technological development of several large-size cross-sea bridges. It is pointed out that China needs to improve the coastal hydrodynamic monitoring system, to solve the key problems in the coastal engineering construction under severe environment conditions, and to strengthen the management and ecological protection of coastal zones.
