Abstract : This report inventories training structures in estuaries. The ultimate goal of the research is to improve design guidance for the effective use of training structures in estuaries. This inventory is the result of literature and map surveys to determine what structures exist in the estuaries and is the first of three planned stages of research. Several structures will be selected for further detailed data retrieval. The structures will then be modelled in both a physical model (flume) and a numerical model. The resulting product will be a numerical method verified by prototype and physical model data to assist during the design stage for estuarine training structures. The method will also aid engineers in determining the effectiveness of existing structures. Keywords: Dike, Jetty.
