Abstract:

In this Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN, a preliminary approach is presented to quantify the resilience of dune and beach nourishment projects using metrics from Beach-fx Rogers et al. 2008. The objectives of this CHETN are to describe how dune and beach nourishment projects fit into the definition of resilience and to identify Beach-fx output data that can be used as metrics to quantify resilience. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers USACE has implemented dune and beach nourishment projects across the country for coastal storm risk management CSRM purposes. Quantifying resilience will support the planning and design of resilient CSRM projects.
