Description: Technical note
Purpose: To aid in the selection of shore protection structures by briefly comparing the functional applications and limitations of: bulkheads, seawalls, revetments, groins, and protective beaches. This Coastal Engineering Technical Note (CETN) introduces a series of five notes on these particular structures that are primarily for use by Corps personnel who do not have a background in coastal engineering. This series of notes provide the type of information needed for answering inquiries from the general public concerning the function and construction of shore protection alternatives.
