About the Journal

The mission of the Journal of Coastal and Hydraulic Structures (JCHS) is to publish rigorously peerreviewed research and engineering results focused on the field of coastal and hydraulic structures.


The scope of content ranges from the fluid mechanics, fluid-structure interaction and hydraulics of loads, to risk analysis of hazards and consequences, inspections and maintenance, damage and failure countermeasures, laboratory and numerical methods, nature based solutions, and related topics pertaining to structures at ports, coasts, waterways and lakes. Interdisciplinary topics treating hydraulics combined with structural design and analysis, geotechnical issues, and local sediment transport (scour) are also welcomed. Case studies and post-disaster field surveys whose findings add value to the understanding and optimization of hydraulic and coastal structures are equally considered. Manuscript submissions are welcome from academia, industry, government, and all others whose work related to the scope.


JCHS is entirely open access and free for both authors and readers. JCHS is hosted by the TU Delft library (https://journals.open.tudelft.nl/), ensuring availability of archived material in perpetuity. Papers are published online individually as they are accepted and format is approved. They are grouped into one journal volume / issue per year and archived in this manner. This allows our publisher TU Delft Open to propose the JCHS for indexing (e.g. Scopus) and impact factor evaluation.
