    Key features of the case study

    This artificial structure provides a shallow water body along the bank line protected from boat wave wash by a sheet pile wall. This wall has trapezoidal 11 x 5 x 1.5 m (upper x lower width x depth) openings every 29.5 m with gabions behind to protect the littoral from parallel currents. The whole bank structure is 264 m long. This kind of artificial, shallow, wave-protected bank structure increases the construction costs by 8–15% compared with the most expensive standard embankment.
