This publication was prepared with the intention to fill a gap in the knowledge that exists there in the general industry literature available today on port/harbor engineering and aims to provide the practicing engineers with the necessary background information which they need in order to be able to design various these structures for the berthing of the vessels, their mooring, and necessary repair works. The volume contains a thorough introductory part and should also be very useful to all parties involved in shipping operations such as port authority engineers, port planners, marine contractors and terminal operators. The chapters of this valuable book provide necessary information of ship's dimensions and characteristics, general ship design considerations, operational/environmental loads, design of the berthing loads plus fender systems as well as various fixed and floating structures, etc. Different types of the drydocks have been covered in the pages of this handbook, together with the procedures for assessment of such structures. The text is supplemented with nearly two hundred ship line drawings and more than fifty color photographs, numerous informative graphs and data tables enabling readers to better catch the material presented. All relevant standards and regulations have also been addressed and referenced where necessary.
