DESCRIPTION

This valuable handbook for practicing engineers covers the design of marine structures for the berthing, mooring, and repair of vessels, including piers, wharves, bulkheads, quaywalls, dolphins, dry docks, floating docks, and various ancillary structures. Descriptions of vessel characteristics, dry dock types, and inspection, as well as assessment of existing facilities are all incorporated in this comprehensive marine facilities reference. At the end of each chapter, in-depth references are provided so that a given subject can be readily explored. Important design standards, 197 line drawings and 53 photos, as well as numerous graphs and tables for quick reference are incorporated in the book. Civil and structural engineers involved in port and harbor structures design will find this book an excellent introductory text because it covers all structural types that are likely to be encountered in port, harbor, and marine terminal designs.
