Beach Nourishment Design

Beach nourishment is the creation of new beach or to widen the existing beach by applying the process of dumping or pumping of beach sand. gbc - geotechnical engineering provides this complex and integrated planning and design process with particular respect to the investigation of erosion impact caused by hydraulic conditions (wave impact, currents, tidal conditions, sediment transport), climate & weather and seabed conditions) by providing the design of the following main components: 
  • Beach sand fill with dimensions, sections and beach sand filling sequencing 
  • Erosion protection measures (breakwater system etc.) 
  • Beach monitoring system and beach maintenance management plan  
  • Investigation of hydraulic impact  to adjacent areas caused by the beach nourishment at the project area
