About the book CONTENT
This book is an outcome of extensive experience in design office and of construction. Both 1 SEA AND TIDES
the authors have been actively associated with academics as well. 2 HYDROGRAPHIC SURVEYS AND CHARTS
The book deals with all the normal port aspects in a holistic way. Topics, such as “Ship 3 WINDS, WAVES AND CYCLONES
Features”, “Traffic Forecasting and Hinterland”, “Cargo Handling Equipment”, “Construction 4 SILTATION AND EROSION
Materials” 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. 8 HARBOUR LAYOUT
It contains useful tables of data and is profusely illustrated with diagrams and photographs 9 CHANNEL, BASIN AND BERTHS
to assist the reader. Fundamental concepts are lucidly presented and derived and empirical 10 BREAKWATERS
formulae given with clarity of underlying assumptions. 11 WHARVES
Two case histories have been added in this Revised Edition. One is design of a waterfront 13 BERTHS FOR CRUDE OIL AND PETROLEUM PRODUCTS
structure, a Berth or a Wharf. It gives the exact procedure that was followed while designing 14 RO-RO FERRY SERVICE
a waterfront structure viz. a berth, in a professional practice. The aim in presenting this 15 LOCKS
“case” is to acquaint the readers to almost all the aspects of a berth, with emphasis on the 16 SHORE PROTECTION WORKS
design. Almost all the design calculations along with the stress/force diagrams are included. 17 DRY DOCKS AND SLIPWAYS
The second “case” is of another waterfront structure, a Sea Water Intake Station. The salient 18 CARGO HANDLING EQUIPMENT
information for determining the guiding dimensional parameters of such a sea water intake 19 APRONS, TRANSIT SHEDS AND WAREHOUSES
station is given. These are meant for the students with inquisitive minds and the practicing 20 SUPPORTING FACILITIES AND ANCILLARIES
engineers seeking guidance when faced with not so usual problems. 21 NAVIGATIONAL AIDS
Other cogent information has been included in the form of Appendices. Some of these are: 23 CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS AND METHODS
“Ships for LPG – LNG and Other Bulk Liquids”, “Properties of Liquids and Liquefied Gases”, 24 DESIGN OF A BERTH (WHARF) – A CASE STUDY
“Details of Selected Ships”, “Coastal Regulation Zone” and “Port Charges”. These should be 25 SEA WATER INTAKE STATION – A CASE STUDY
useful to the students as well as to the practicing engineers. APPENDIX I SHIPS FOR LPG - LNG AND OTHER BULK
The book comprehensively covers the subject for degree courses in engineering of all
the Indian Universities, Diploma Examinations conducted by various Boards of Technical
Education, Certificate Courses as well as for the A.M.I.E., U.P.S.C., G.A.T.E., I.E.S. and APPENDIX III EXPLOSIVES AND HAZARDOUS CARGOES
other similar competitive and professional examinations. Written in a simple language, APPENDIX IV DETAILS OF SELECTED SHIPS
