Seawall design on the open coast is an often overlooked problem in the State of Florida as well as other areas of the South Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. Escoffier [1] mentions numerous seawall failures and improper design considerations along the Mississippi Gulf Coast which were exposed by hurricanes after the seawalls were built. It is hoped that this bulletin, along with Reference 3, will provide a good starting place for those involved in technical design and construction supervision aspects of seawalls.
