The research described and the results presented herein, unless otherwise noted, were
obtained from research conducted under the Scour Holes at Inlet Structures work u-
nit in the Coastal Inlets Research Program at the US Army Engineer Research and
Development Center (ERDC). The laboratory study was conceived as a Master of En-
gineering research project during Mr. Schwichtenberg's participation in the Coastal
Engineering Education Program, which is a cooperative program conducted by Texas
A&M University and ERDC. Permission to publish this information was granted by
the Chief of Engineers. Messrs. Raymond Reed, Ernest Smith, and Willie Dubose
of ERDC are acknowledged for their valuable contributions to the laboratory experi-
ments. Mr. Arthur Shak, Los Angeles District, made valuable suggestions on the toe
