Summary

The Thames is one of the most suitable estuaries in which to examine how engineering works affect flow and sediment movement. Case histories are given to demonstrate the important influence of both structure location and structure design on river conditions. They also illustrate methods available for predicting the consequences of works or for identifying cause and effect following changes in estuary regime. Finally, they provide warning of the penalties of failure to take account of the hydraulic implications of a new structure.
