(24) Since Equation 2-24 is linear, the above solutions can be combined to address more complex

situations than those presented. As an example, consider the case in which staged construction of a beach

nourishment project takes place over a long length of beach and the fill area of the beach is to be confined

in the reach *x *< 0 and maintained at its fill width. Equation 2-37 could be utilized for solving this particular

example in the case that the entire fill was placed at time *t *= 0. Instead, consider that the fill is placed in
