Description: Frequently, the purpose of coastal engineering is to influence or to control the actual conditions of the motion in the sea. Here, the hydrodynamic theory delivers the necessary basic information for technical planning and helps to find the most effective solution to
the problem.
Investigations have been carried out in many countries in order to solve the problems mentioned above. The main purpose of these investigations has been the development of methods which make possible a numerical simulation or physical reproduction of measured sea-levels and ocean currents and other physical phenomena of oceans and seas.
In the following chapters, the progress of these investigations during the past years will be described. Generally speaking three kinds of motion in the sea will be considered:
1. Steady motion caused by wind action or density gradients
2. Unsteady motion due to wind and tide-generating forces which vary
in time and space
3. Stationary motion where the seiche-like phenomena will be described.
In addition the transport processes are analyzed and characterized in one chapter, since they play an important role in sea engineering.
All these types of motion have been treated numerically.
