Description: During my long career as a practicing waterfront
consultant, considerable progress has
occurred in the field of design and construction
of port and navigation related marine
structures. Progress in port design, and, in
particular design of waterfront structures,
has been strongly influenced by dramatic
changes in vessel sizes and in modes of modern
terminal operation. Multipurpose ports
have been replaced by more specialized terminals,
which result in dramatic effects on both
the design of berth structures and layout of
the terminal. Furthermore, marine structures
for various purposes have been developed
using new design and construction
principles, and operation of these structures
have been significantly improved by the
introduction of new and better fendering systems,
and efficient mooring accessories. New
and better structural materials have also
been introduced. For example, modern concrete
technology now enables an engineer to
use durable high-strength concrete, highly
resistant to deterioration in harsh marine
environments. New and better repair procedures
and rehabilitation techniques for port
structures have also been introduced.
