Abstract:

A groin is a shore protective structure built usually perpendicular to the shore to trap sedimentary material or to retard erosion of the shore. Of all the shore protective structures used by coastal engineers, the groin is the most difficult to design - functionally and structurally. Because this complexity of design was not recognized until recently, many early groin installations were failures. CERC supports a continuing research program devoted to gaining a better understanding of groins. This bibliography evolved from the groin research program. About 460 articles published since 1900 on groins and groin-type structures are presented in this bibliography. Annotations accompany each bibliographic entry where possible. Indexes of author, titles, and subjects are included to aid the researcher. Unavailable literature such as foreign articles, although not annotated, are included as entries in both the annotated section and the indexes. Author
