Planning and Design of Ports and Marine Terminals, 2nd edition

Description

Following from the success of the first edition, written by a collection of eminent figures in the field, this new edition continues to look at the rational planning for port facilities requirements (berths, storage and cargo handling equipment), organisations, management and operations with relation to planning and design of ports and marine terminals.

This new edition looks at data regarding natural conditions for site selection, choice of location and orientation of major port components - such as access channels, basins quays and specialised berths. It also looks in detail at breakwater design and the use of model tests, channel design and ways to optimise channel depth, and conversion of general cargo berths to multi-purpose and container berths is discussed.

This book will be an invaluable resource for practising engineers and planners, port administrators and operators, as well as graduate engineers specialising in the field.

Contents

• Berth and terminal design in general. Storage facilities and cargo-handling systems

• Berth and terminal structures design

• Environmental considerations

• Dredging and disposal of contaminated sediments

• MARPOL

• Mathematical models

• Case studies concerned with new ports and port extensions

New to second edition
• A hybrid method for determining container terminal facilities requirements, consisting of simulation, analytical and empirical solutions
