Contenido Port Designer's Handbook

Now in its fourth edition, Port Designer’s Handbook is the definitive guide to the layout, design and construction of harbours and port structures. Fully in line with the latest PIANC recommendations, this book covers all aspects of port planning and design from the impact of environmental on harbours, health and safety, maintenance and repair of port structures and channel and harbour basins. Particular attention is given to the impact of ships including berthing requirements, ship dimension tables and container terminals.

This fully revised edition has also seen the material updated to provide coverage of:

    new design and construction methods of the quay structures
    floating berth structures for large vessels
    detail evaluation of the necessary mooring system
    evaluation of the bollard system and layout
    new design and evaluation of the fender system according to the new PIANC recommendation
    updating the design of the erosion problem in the front of the quay due to the ship propellers
    concrete in port structures
    and much more.

With an intuitive layout where you easily can find information on practical construction methods, Carl A. Thoresen’s guide is an essential purchase for all practicing port and harbour engineers, designers and contractors as well as students new to this continually developing area.

Book Reviews

"The Port Designer’s Handbook is well known to maritime engineers worldwide. It provides practical guidance, mainly based on the author’s experience in Norwegian practice and solutions, for all those responsible for the design of port and harbour structures.  

The author uses his more than 50 years’ experience of working on some 850 port and harbour projects to provide guidance and recommendations on the layout, design and construction of modern port structures, and the forces and loadings acting upon them.

The fourth edition includes changes to design and construction of berths for large vessels due to new developments in construction and use of new materials. The chapter on port planning is extensive but could usefully include more on masterplanning. The types of concrete and steel deterioration and methods of repair are extensively covered, as is safety, with sections on specification, design, construction, personnel and operation."

Nigel Bodell, Bodell Port Consultancy Ltd, UK   
There are very worthwhile structural engineering chapters on ship impact, safety considerations, erosion protection, steel corrosion, underwater concreting, concrete deterioration, and concrete maintenance and repair; and these again accentuate the need to consider constructability / durability / maintainability issues within the design phase.  As an example, anti-washout concrete is advocated in Chapter 18 Underwater Concreting.

(…) It contains pragmatic structural advice which can be applied to any project with even a minor maritime element, and which can also potentially be adapted to many other project types.

The book deals with various international standards, and new calculation methods for quays etc.  These are based on PIANC's-, the German EAU - and the English BSI - recommendations. The Spanish ROM guidelines are also emphasized in the work. In Norway the book is called Port Designer’s Bible.

    new reviews about how quays should be constructed and built
    mooring principles of different types of ships at various port facilities
    entrance to channels
    new tables of vessels, sizes and types
    design and area review of quay- and container areas
    updated information related to state of the art container equipment
    automation of container handling
    new methods for dimension of fenders
    ports in Arctic conditions
    repair of quays
    floating docks in general as well as the floating breakwaters.
