Port Designers Handbook, 3rd edition

Description

Port Designer’s Handbook, Third edition provides practising port and harbour consulting engineers with essential guidance and recommendations for the layout, design and construction of modern harbour and port structures. The third edition is extensively revised and discusses various factors to consider when designing efficient container terminals. Water depth, berth structure, and environmental forces are discussed in line with PIANC recommendations and considerations.

The latest developments in navigation safety, site selection, layout, cargo handling, and mooring principles are outlined and evaluated, and operational conditions for ships in channels and harbour basins are discussed. Drawing on PIANC specifications, international harbour standards and recommendations are thoroughly explored. This handbook is an invaluable resource to practising port and harbour consulting engineers as well as contractors involved in the layout, design and construction of berth and harbour structures.

Port Designer’s Handbook, Third edition:

• provides revised calculations for wind, current and wave forces according to the PIANC and international specification and recommendations
• demonstrates safety considerations, calculations, evaluations and recommendations in line with PIANC and Eurocode specifications
• outlines design considerations relating to loadings, berth structures, cargo handling equipment and berthing forces
• details open berth structures including larger types of vessels e.g. large oil and LNG tankers which need increased water depth for berthing
• discusses new container handling equipment and the demand for more efficient container terminals based on the new PIANC recommendations
