By J.G. de Gijt, M.L. Broeken

This re-creation of the guide of Quay Walls presents the reader with crucial wisdom for the making plans, layout, execution and upkeep of quay partitions, in addition to basic information regarding old advancements and classes discovered from the remark of ports in a variety of international locations. Technical chapters are by means of a close calculation of a quay wall according to a semi-probabilistic layout method, which applies the idea awarded earlier.

Since the ebook of the Dutch variation in 2003 and the English model in 2005, massive new event has been got via the numerous practitioners utilizing the publication, prompting the replace of this instruction manual. additionally, the creation of the Eurocodes in 2012 has brought on a whole revision of the layout bankruptcy, that's now compliant with the Eurocodes. in addition, extra options for utilizing FEM-analysis in quay wall layout were included.

In reaction to ongoing discussions in the approximately buckling standards for metal pipe piles, an intensive study venture used to be performed on metal pipe piles fi lled with sand and on piles with out sand. the result of this study programme have additionally been included during this new version.

Finally, the part on corrosion has been up-to-date to refl ect the newest wisdom and a focus has been given to the newest worldwide advancements in quay wall engineering.

The re-creation was once made attainable because of the contributions of various specialists from the Netherlands and Belgium.

However, this type of concrete structure is complicated, thus expensive and is therefore no longer built. 14 Building from the water side The first phase of the Amazonehaven quay could not be constructed from the landside. Therefore it was necessary to make a design that could be constructed from the waterside. Together with a number of other boundary conditions, this led to the construction of an alternative structure with a lighter superstructure and a heavier sheet pile wall than been used previously.
