Since 1990, John Gaythwaite's Design of Marine Facilities stands out as the one essential reference for the engineering and design of ports, harbours, and marine terminals. The Third Edition continues this tradition by providing the accurate, authoritative explanations and recommendations required by civil engineers who are building and maintaining the structures used to berth, moor, and repair ocean-going vessels.
Gaythwaite provides comprehensive technical discussions on a variety of loads and design issues relevant to ports and harbours. Topics include:
Features of marine facilities
Operational and environmental loads
Berthing loads and fender system design
Mooring loads and design principles
Design of fixed structures, including piers, wharves, dolphins, access buildings, crane trackage, and ship services
Geotechnical design for marine sites, including foundations, slopes, bulkheads and retaining structures, solid-fill structures, and pile and drilled-shaft foundations
Rehabilitation, maintenance, and inspection.
