HR Wallingford Training Course Set for March

HR Wallingford is about to organize a one-day training course, named Introduction to Coastal Structures, that will introduce the key issues of coastal processes and design methods for coastal structures.

The design of coastal structures needs to address many factors to ensure long-term effectiveness and stability. This includes an understanding of wave loads, wave characteristics, engineering design and coastal processes.

This one-day course explains the key issues of coastal processes and design methods for coastal structures, including seawalls, breakwaters, vertical walls, piers and jetties.

Course content:

  • An introduction to the key issues in coastal engineering, vulnerabilities of different coastlines (developed and natural) and the key drivers for flooding/erosion threats;
  • The effects of encounter probability, wave forecasting, wave transformations and depth-limited breaking;
  • Simple methods to estimate wave loads and how to predict wave overtopping, crest level calculation and armor size determination.

The training course will take place on March 3rd 2016, at the Howbery Business Park in Wallingford, UK.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
