HR Wallingford Training Course on Coastal Management

HR Wallingford will be the organizer of a two-day training course from March 12-13, 2019, introducing participants with the methods being used in designing and planning coastal engineering and management schemes.

According to the company, the course is aimed at those who have just started or are about to start work on coastal management or engineering activities including engineers and managers from local authorities, coastal landowners, regulators and operating authorities.

Course content

  • Coastal management planning – An overview of the reasons for and history of changes and management of coastlines.
  • Waves and tides – An introduction and the requirements for coastal management.
  • Beach sediment transport/ morphology processes.
  • Planning coastal management and engineering schemes – An introduction to options, appropriate methods and assessing the potential effects of such works.

At the end of the course participants will understand the types of problems that need to be solved in coastal engineering and management.

They will understand how wave conditions, tidal flows and levels and their joint occurrence can be evaluated and how coastlines of different types have evolved and are likely to change in the future.

Also they will learn how alternative methods of reducing risks of erosion or flooding are planned and designed, issues relating to the design, performance, sustainability and effects of any type of infrastructure that needs to be engineered with knowledge of coastal processes, etc.

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.
