   The subject of port engineering is very broad. In fact, this is a blend that encompasses the array of engineering disciplines—civil, structural, geotechnical, hydraulic, naval architecture, and others—not to mention the socioeconomic and environmental aspects, knowledge of which is required to produce a sound design of a modern port or marine terminal. In previous work published in the past 10 to 15 years, I have attempted to address in depth some important subjects related to design and construction of port-related structures and facilities. However, many port-related issues, such as dredging, maintenance, environmental problems, security, and many others, still need to be addressed and presented in a reader-friendly format. This volume has been written by a group of experts in their respective fields of expertise to fill a niche in the existing literature on port and harbor engineering and to provide port designers and operators, particularly those concerned with the design of a port- and harbor-related marine structures, with state-of-the-art information and commonsensc guidelines to port planning, design, construction, and maintenance of port facilities. Contributors to this book have been motivated by the desire not only to share their experiences with their colleagues in the profession, but also to provide those intended to join the field of port engineering with essential knowledge of the subjects related to successful port design, construction, and operation. This is important, because unfortunately, all too frequently, good and less costly engineering solutions are not used, due to a lack of familiarity on the part of the designer. On the other hand, use of a textbook solution to solve the problem may also be counterproductive. Every project is site specific, thus no engineer should be content merely to follow another's designs but should study such designs and use them as a starting point for developing his or her own ideas that are best suitable for the particular site conditions. It must be understood that engineering in general and port engineering in particular is the profession in which knowledge of the mathematics, economics, and physical sciences gained from previous experiences must be applied to the particular project with thorough understanding that in a great many practical cases the problem cannot be solved with mathematical precision; the use of mathematical formulation of a particular problem must be practical and compatible with the data available. The design procedures and guidelines contained in the book are intended to point out the complexity of the particular problem and to illustrate factors that should be considered and included in an appropriate design scenario. They should not be used indiscriminately, particularly not for the detailed design, and should always be combined with good engineering judgment. The book is designed to serve as a guide and a reference for practicing engineers bul is also aimed at engineering students and others seeking to enter the field of port engineering.
