This handbook provides information and guidelines, covering the design, construction, and modernization of port and harbour related marine structures. The design procedures and guidelines address the complex problems and illustrate factors that should be considered and included in appropriate design scenarios. Drawing on more than 40years experience, the author provides an understanding for determining design load and carrying out structural design for all types of port related marine stuctures. The book also covers the geotechnical design aspects as related to design and construction of marine structures, explaining in detail the phenomenon of soil/structure interaction and reaction of marine foundations to miscellaneous loads. Each self-contained chapter in the book includes a list of cross references enabling the reader to study the subject in depth.This indispensable handbook provides state-of-the-art information and common sense guidelines, covering the design, construction, modernization of port and harbor related marine structures.
