The impact of seawalls on nearby beaches and the dynamics of the coast has not been adequately studied in the literature. The purpose and function of coastal buildings, particularly seawalls, are sometimes misinterpreted since, in certain situations, they actually contribute to coastal erosion instead of safeguarding the beach as intended. By influencing the onshoreoffshore and, to some extent, the longshore sand transport, seawalls are purportedly changing the near-shore process, notably the sediment dynamics. Therefore, it is crucial to comprehend how seawalls affect the nearby beach in order to ensure that installation selections are made with more knowledge. A seawall is built along the coast, maybe at the base of cliffs or dunes. A seawall is often a concrete structure with a slope its surface may be smooth, stepped, or curved. A seawall can also be constructed as a block seawall, a rubble-mound construction, a steel or timber structure. The fact that the building is built to resist powerful wave action and storm surge is a defining trait. Such rigid seawalls are frequently protected at their foot by a rubblemound revetment. A rubble-mound revetment and a rubble-mound seawall are quite similar, although a revetment is frequently utilised as an addition to a seawall or as a stand-alone building in less vulnerable regions. A seawall is occasionally used to refer to an exposed dike that has been reinforced to withstand wave action.This report discuss the Construction techniques of Rubble Mound Sea wall , also its types, and Failure Pattern for this the Mumbai costal road case study taken in to consideration
