Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During recent decades, the ongoing exploitation of coastal areas, along with the problems related to coastal erosion, water quality, land use, and soil transformation, highlighted the issues of coastal vulnerability. Therefore, the assessment of possible impacts of current and future climate change scenarios and the definition of new technical solutions and strategies for future planning in coastal environments are crucial issues that must be addressed by the scientific community. A great amount of research has been conducted, but there remains extensive work that must be carried out to find sustainable and feasible solutions to these issues, while understanding the genesis of some natural or human-induced phenomena.

This Special Issue intends to collect original works and reviews that aim to illustrate innovative and sustainable strategies. Due to the interdisciplinarity of the topic, research from different areas characterized by a holistic approach (e.g., the socio-economic impact on coastal areas) is most welcome.

A list of possible topics of interest is presented below:

  • Adaptation to climate change.
  • Climate change scenarios.
  • Coastal erosion.
  • Coastal flooding.
  • Coastal hazard assessment.
  • Coastal risk assessment.
  • Coastal flooding.
  • Hydrodynamics and morphodynamics of coastal areas.
  • Interaction between land use and coastal erosion.
  • Interaction between river and coastal hydrodynamics and morphodynamics.
  • Sustainable planning for coastal zone management.
  • Nature-based solutions.
  • Sediment management.
  • Statistical analysis of extreme coastal events.
  • Water quality.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Abstract
The majority of long-span bridges and offshore construction in deep water are supported by bored pile foundations. Pile foundations under water will be susceptible to scour, which will pose a significant danger to their safe operation. A three-dimensional finite element (FE) numerical analysis [...] Read more.
The majority of long-span bridges and offshore construction in deep water are supported by bored pile foundations. Pile foundations under water will be susceptible to scour, which will pose a significant danger to their safe operation. A three-dimensional finite element (FE) numerical analysis was conducted to examine the influence of scour on the responses of laterally loaded drilled piles in marine clays. First, the FE numerical model was calibrated using field test data of a drilled pile that did not include scour in soft marine clay. The findings of numerical modeling reveal that scour decreases the ultimate lateral capacity of socketed drilled piles, with the percentage of reduction being strongly related to scour types and depth, but moderately related to scour hole width and slope angle. Finally, a semi-empirical formula for calculating the effects of scour on the lateral capacity of socketed drilled piles following scour is presented. This method may be utilized fast and effectively to calculate scour’s effects. Full article
