    DescriptionThis comprehensively updated new edition to the bestselling Port Designer's Handbook, gives essential guidance and recommendations for the layout, design and construction of modern port structures. Since the first edition of the handbook was published, there have been considerable improvements, and advancements in knowledge of the design of port and berth structures. The second edition incorporates these changes as well as the latest developments in navigation safety, port planning and site selection, layout of container and oil and gas terminals, cargo handling, and fender and mooring principles. The book additionally covers the evaluation of operational conditions due to the impact from wind, waves and current loads on port and berth structures, and berthing and layout criteria for ships in channels and harbour basins. Due to growing interest in the design of port and harbour structures over the last few years there have been a huge number of research reports and technical papers published, particularly by the International Navigation Association PIANC's different working groups. Many of these new sources of information have been evaluated and summarised in this handbook, giving readers an understanding of the latest guidance given by the different international harbour standards and recommendations. Already considered by many in the port engineering profession to be a must-have reference, the updated edition of the handbook will prove an invaluable resource to practising port and harbour consulting engineers as well as contractors involved in the layout, design and construction of berth and harbour structures.
