Jetties, piers and other marine structures constructed in exposed locations require careful assessment of their hydraulic loads. Increasingly trade economics are leading to larger ship sizes and existing and new port locations for these vessels require longer jetties in significantly deeper water. In these instances construction of protective break
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 termi
This volume presents the proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers' seventh internaional conference on coastlines, structures and breakwaters. The papers contained in the volume cover wide ranging advances in international research and experience in the field of coastal and harbour engineering.
