This book is an outcome of extensive experience in design office and of construction. Both the authors have been actively associated with academics. The book deals with all the normal port aspects in a holistic way. Topics, such as “Ship Features”, “Traffic Forecasting and Hinterland”, “Cargo Handling Equipment”, “Construction Materials”, “Traffic Forecasting and Hinterland” “Berths for Crude Oil and Petroleum Products” “RO-RO Ferry Terminals,” etc. are essential back-ground knowledge for any dock and harbour engineer. These too have been covered. For easy reading, the book is divided into self-contained chapters dealing with each topic. It contains useful tables of data and is profusely illustrated with diagrams and photographs to assist the reader. Fundamental concepts are lucidly presented and derived and empirical formulae given with clarity of underlying assumptions. Other cogent information has been given in the form of Appendices. Some of these are : “Ships for LPG-LNG and other Bulk Liquids”, “Properties of Liquids and Liquefied Gases”, “Details of Selected Ships”, “Coastal Regulation Zone” and “Port Charges”. The book comprehensively covers the subject for degree courses in engineering of all the Indian Universities and associate membership examinations of professional bodies. Written in a simple language, with illustrative references, it will be useful to students to grasp the subject and practising engineers in designing.
