expressing the result of a test of analysis. For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is complied with. BDC 66 FOREWORD This Indian Standard ( Part 2 ) ( First Revision ) was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards on 24 May 1989. observed or calculated. This part ( Part 2 ) deals with earth pressures. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard. A great need has been felt for formulating standard recommendations relating to various aspects of water front structures. This standard is one of a series of Indian Standards formulated on this subject. The clause on earth pressure has been revised. the subject has been covered comprehensively to include all aspects related to earth pressure needed for the design of ports and harbours structures. . the final value. This standard was first published in 1969 mainly to cover provisions of earth pressure for the design of port and harbour structures. after the draft finalized by the Ports and Harbours Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council.Ports and Harbours Sectional Committee. shall be rounded off in accordance with IS 2 : l%O ‘Rules for rounding off numerical values ( revised)‘.
