DAMAGES TO COASTAL STRUCTURES

Orville T. Magoon, Robert L. Sloan, Gary L. Foote

Abstract


Coastal Engineering literature contains many references to coastal structures in the design or construction stage but few references to these same structures concerning their maintenance effectiveness subsequent to completion. This paper describes a successful long-term maintenance history of major coastal public structures in the State of California, U.S.A. It is concluded that proper design combined with prudent maintenance will result in effective coastal structures with long economic lifetimes.
