Conference topics

CoastLab18 will provide an interesting forum to discuss the latest developments in physical modeling applied to coastal and port engineering and coastal science. Papers that describe new research, technical innovation and interesting real-world case studies and projects will be included in the following topics:

  • Coastal hydrodynamics, coastal processes
  • Sediment transport, erosion, sedimentation, scour
  • Coastal flooding, flood prevention, shore protection
  • Coastal and ocean structures, breakwaters, revetments
  • Wave-structure interactions, loading, response
  • Wave runup and overtopping
  • Industrial outfalls, mixing, water quality
  • Ports, marine terminals, navigation, ship motions
  • Wave and tidal energy
  • Laboratory technologies, measurement systems
  • Wave synthesis, generation and analysis
  • Scale effects and uncertainty analysis
  • Combined physical and numerical modelling
  • Extreme events – assessment and mitigation
  • Tsunami hydrodynamics, impacts and mitigation
  • Climate change impacts and adaptation
  • Physical modelling case studies
  • Coastal field measurements and monitoring
  • Natural based solutions and eco-engineering
