  author={James O. Eckert and Gordon Callender},
Abstract : This is comprehensive report providing an overview of geotechnical engineering aspects for coastal engineers to use in planning and design of coastal projects. The fundamentals of geotechnical engineering, including coastal area soil classification and engineering properties of soil analyses, are discussed first. Then, important geotechnical considerations in coastal site selection, methodologies of subsurface exploration and soil testing techniques, in the field and laboratory, are… CONTINUE READING
