PROJECT CLOSING STATEMENT

The Technical Report includes an extensive review of the current state of understanding of mixed beach processes, the method of prediction of the cliffing problem, and preliminary advice on good practices in relation to beach recharge programmes

SUMMARY OBJECTIVE

Produce a review of existing knowledge and current practice relating to beach recharge. Produce, justify and prioritise a costed framework of field and/or laboratory investigations (possibly linked with demonstration schemes) to advance knowledge of the processes involve and hence provide better-founded guidance for design and management of recharged beaches. KEY

CUSTOMER PURPOSE

Improve design methodology for shingle and mixed beach recharge with respect to material mixing, grading specification and construction method.
