1. Purpose.
This manual provides current guidance, engineering procedures, and case study examplesfor coastal problems involving nearshore sediment transport processes.
2. Applicability.
This manual applies to HQUSACE/OCE elements, major subordinate commands,districts, laboratories, and field operating activities (FOA) having responsibility for design, construction,and operation of civil works projects within the nearshore coastal region.
3. General.
This manual describes the forces controlling coastal littoral transport, and presents methodsand techniques for determining sediment transport rates. Several case studies are described illustratingapplication of the methods discussed. The methodologies and examples presented in this manual serveto transfer the technical knowledge obtained from recent research efforts to FOAs.FOR THE COMMANDER:Colonel, Corps of EngineersChief of Staff
