Port Designer’s Handbook, Third edition provides practising port and harbour consulting engineers with essential guidance and recommendations for the layout, design and construction of modern harbour and port structures. The third edition is extensively revised and discusses various factors to consider when designing efficient container terminals. Water depth, berth structure, and environmental forces are discussed in line with PIANC recommendations and considerations.

The latest developments in navigation safety, site selection, layout, cargo handling, and mooring principles are outlined and evaluated, and operational conditions for ships in channels and harbour basins are discussed. Drawing on PIANC specifications, international harbour standards and recommendations are thoroughly explored. This handbook is 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.

Port Designer’s Handbook, Third edition:
