Abstract


The coastal town Ostend in Belgium has his sea wall far in the sea. For this reason, the protection of the town against storms is difficult. A harbor is situated in the city, with the harbor entrance close to the most important sea wall. Integration of harbor constructions and coastal protections schemes is necessary.

Keywords


integrated coastal zone management; protection schemes; sea wall design
