Description: General Investigation of Tidal Inlets Report
Abstract: This report presents a summary of several of the important basic developments pertaining to analysis of the hydraulics and relative stability of tidal inlets. In particular, it covers the work reported by Brown (1928) and Keulegan (1967) on inlet hydraulic calculations, and by O'Brien (1931, 1966), Jarrett (1976), Bruun (1966), Johnson (1973), O'Brien and Dean (1972), and Escoffier (1940) on the analysis of inlet channel stability. The original inlet stability concept proposed by Escoffier is extended in light of recent work. The report also contains brief discussions on tidal inlet characteristics and functional design requirements as well as case studies of selected inlets on the U.S. coasts.
