Over the past twenty years there has been considerable improvement and new information in the design of port and berth structures. This handbook reflects the latest progress and developments in navigation safety, port planning and site selection, layout of container, oil and gas terminals, cargo handling, berth design and construction, fender and mooring principles. It presents guidelines and recommendations for the main items and assumptions in the layout, design and construction of modern port structures, and the forces and loadings methods for port and berth structures, and recommendations given by the different international harbor standards and recommendations. Practicing harbor and port engineers and students will find the handbook an invaluable source of information. CONTENTS include: port planning and site selection; channels and harbor basin; environmental forces, operational conditions and acceptable ship movements; maneuvering and berthing requirements; safety considerations in layout and design of berth structures; design loads on berth structures and impacts from ships; criteria for choice of berth structures; solid and open berth structures; container terminals; fender design and berth details; erosion protection; corrosion of steel sheet piles; different methods of underwater concreting; deteriorating and repair of concrete in marine environments; and ship dimensions and ship wind and current areas for different types of ships.acting on them.
