This book, whose primary aim is to describe liquefaction processes and their implications for marine structures such as pipelines, sea outfalls, quay walls and caisson breakwaters, discusses the subject of soil liqeufaction in the marine environment. In addition, the physics of liquefaction (including examples illustrating the catastrophic consequences of soil liquefaction with regard to marine structures) are described, and the mathematical modelling of liqeufaction is treated in detail. Also, carefully selected numerical examples support the discussion of assessing liquefaction potential, and benchmark cases such as buried gas pipelines and their floatation, caisson breakwaters, cover stones and their interaction with liquefied soil along with counter measures are investigated.

The book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the physical processes which, according to the present state of knowledge, determine the evolution of coastal systems and their response to human interventions. This response depends to a large degree on the self-organising properties of coastal dynamics, which form a leading theme throughout the book. The basic theoretical ideas are explained in text and figures and also in formulas for the more mathematically inclined reader. Theories are illustrated with examples from estuaries, coastal lagoons, beaches and tidal flat systems from all over the world. The rules and simple models can be used directly without relying on complex computations; much attention is given to the strengths and weaknesses of the underlying theories and their limits of applicability. The book is fully self-contained; some knowledge of basic physics and mathematics is recommended. The book is an upgrade of the first edition. Most parts are rewritten and chapters are added to incorporate research results, new insight and experience of the past ten years. This book is intended for everyone interested in coastal systems for professional or educational reasons.

Synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) as a form of radar to create images of objects, uses the motion of the radar antenna over a targeted region to provide finer spatial resolution than is possible with conventional beam-scanning radars by mounting the antenna on a moving platform such as an aircraft or spacecraft. As antenna aperture (the "size" of the antenna) is defined by the distance the SAR device travels over a target in the time taken for the radar pulses to return to the antenna, the larger the aperture is, the higher the image resolution, therefore, this enables SAR to create high resolution images with comparatively small physical antennas. This special book aims to provide the updated theories and methods for the use of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) onboard satellites to detect ocean processes, i.e., SAR ocean remote sensing. It is a hi-tech application field having been developed since late 1970s and become a powerful tool for obtaining dynamic signatures from the remote and broad ocean.

Beaches in Japan have been eroding since the 1970s because of artificial land alterations and unsustainable coastal development. Almost all causes of the beach erosion in Japan are due to anthropogenic factors — as a result of human activity. This book presents the state of the beaches throughout Japan, looking at the current reality and the classification of causes of beach erosion using real-life, illustrated examples. It then goes on to look at practical models which can be used to predict changes to different types of beaches, and concludes with investigation of beach erosion as a wider structural problem. Lessons learnt show the manner in which excessive coastal development without clearly identified measures for beach protection can have widespread global ramifications. This second edition presents new findings from field studies carried out on Japanese beaches, along with the development and improvement of the numerical model presented previously. In addition to the first edition, six new examples of the beach erosion in Japan are included, as is new analysis of the BG model (a model for predicting based on Bagnold's concept), which can be applicable to various field problems. Originally published in Japanese (2004), this updated version gives clear practical guidance to coastal engineers working to prevent irreversible beach erosion and sustainable coastal development policy.

Modern design of berm breakwaters began about thirty years ago. However, to date, there has been a lack of a well-established, formal design methodology on berm breakwaters. The authors Dr Jentsje van der Meer and Sigurdur Sigurdarson combine over 40 years of collective experience working with breakwaters to put forward a design framework in Design and Construction of Berm Breakwaters; covering the science and design practices of berm breakwater structures. The original design consisted of mass armoured berms that reshaped into statically stable S-shaped slopes. The design was adopted in Iceland and eventually led to a development with more stable structures by using available rock sizes, large rock, and more rock gradings than just "small rock (core)" and "large rock (berm)". This more stable and only partly reshaping structure is called the Icelandic-type berm breakwater. Written for researchers and practitioners, the volume consists of chapters on geometrical designs of the berm breakwater cross-section, including berm reshaping and wave overtopping, quarry and project management, as well as blasting and sorting techniques, designs for various wave conditions and available rock classes, and case studies of already constructed berm breakwaters.

Die Theorie der komplexen Funktionen wird im Hinblick auf die den Ingenieur interessierenden Anwendungen entwickelt. Dementsprechend wird das intuitive Erfassen von Tatsachen und Begriffen in den Vordergrund gestellt und Beweisführungen werden nur gebracht, soweit sie zum anschaulichen Verständnis des Stoffes beitragen. Dieser erste Band enthält den Begriff der komplexen Funktionen, der analytischen Funktionen, der konformen Abbildung. Die wichtigsten komplexen Funktionen werden auf ihr Abbildungsverhalten hin ausführlich untersucht. Es wird eine Methode entwickelt, die mit Hilfe konformer Abbildung ebene Potentialprobleme löst.

In dem Lehrbuch für Studenten der Chemie werden wichtige Aspekte und Zusammenhänge der Strukturen anorganisch-chemischer Verbindungen dargelegt. Die Strukturmerkmale von Molekülverbindungen wie auch von Festkörpern werden behandelt und an anschaulichen Beispielen erläutert. So weit wie möglich werden diese Strukturen mit einfachen und eingängigen Theorien erklärt (Gillespie-Nyholm-Theorie, Ligandenfeldtheorie, Ionenradienverhältnisse, Pauling-Regeln, (8-N)-Regel u.ä.), es wird aber auch auf die moderne Bindungstheorie eingegangen. Wichtige Festkörperstrukturen werden wiederholte Male und dabei jedes Mal von einem anderen Standpunkt betrachtet. Zusammenhänge zwischen Struktur und physikalischen Eigenschaften werden herausgearbeitet. Für die 5. Auflage wurde die Darstellung auf den aktuellen Stand des Wissens gebracht und an zahlreichen Stellen erweitert.
