DOCK AND HARBOUR ENGINEERINGHasmukh P. Oza, Gautam H. OzaEdition : 8th Edition : 2016 ISBN : 9789385039256 Size : 170 mm x 235 mm Binding : Paperback Pages : 384 + 24 = 408` 250.00ABOUT THE BOOKThis book is an outcome of extensive experience in design office and of construction. Both the authors have been actively associated with academics as well. 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” 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. Two case histories have been added in this Revised Edition. One is design of a waterfront structure, a Berth or a Wharf. It gives the exact procedure that was followed while designing a waterfront structure viz. a berth, in a professional practice. The aim in presenting this “case” is to acquaint the readers to almost all the aspects of a berth, with emphasis on the design. Almost all the design calculations along with the stress/force diagrams are included. The second “case” is of another waterfront structure, a Sea Water Intake Station. The salient information for determining the guiding dimensional parameters of such a sea water intake station is given. These are meant for the students with inquisitive minds and the practicing engineers seeking guidance when faced with not so usual problems. Other cogent information has been included 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”. These should be useful to the students as well as to the practicing engineers. 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 other similar competitive and professional examinations. Written in a simple language, with illustrative references, it will be useful to students to grasp the subject and practising engineers in designing.CONTENT1 : SEA AND TIDES 2 : HYDROGRAPHIC SURVEYS AND CHARTS 3 : WINDS, WAVES AND CYCLONES 4 : SILTATION AND EROSION 5 : INVESTIGATIONS AND MODEL TESTS 6 : SHIP FEATURES RELATED TO PORT PLANNING 7 : TRAFFIC FORECASTING AND HINTERLAND 8 : HARBOUR LAYOUT 9 : CHANNEL, BASIN AND BERTHS 10 : BREAKWATERS 11 : WHARVES 12 : JETTIES, DOLPHINS AND MOORINGS 13 : BERTHS FOR CRUDE OIL AND PETROLEUM PRODUCTS 14 : RO-RO FERRY SERVICE 15 : LOCKS 16 : SHORE PROTECTION WORKS 17 : DRY DOCKS AND SLIPWAYS 18 : CARGO HANDLING EQUIPMENT 19 : APRONS, TRANSIT SHEDS AND WAREHOUSES 20 : SUPPORTING FACILITIES AND ANCILLARIES 21 : NAVIGATIONAL AIDS 22 : DREDGING AND DREDGERS 23 : CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS AND METHODS 24 : DESIGN OF A BERTH (WHARF) – A CASE STUDY 25 : SEA WATER INTAKE STATION – A CASE STUDY APPENDIX I : SHIPS FOR LPG - LNG AND OTHER BULK LIQUIDS APPENDIX II : PROPERTIES OF LIQUIDS AND LIQUEFIED GASES APPENDIX III : EXPLOSIVES AND HAZARDOUS CARGOES APPENDIX IV : DETAILS OF SELECTED SHIPS APPENDIX V : COASTAL REGULATION ZONE (CRZ) APPENDIX VI : GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR BERTHS AS PER IS:4651 APPENDIX VII : PORT CHARGES APPENDIX VIII : ANGLES OF INTERNAL FRICTION, UNIT WEIGHTS AND LIQUIDITY FACTORS OF SOME MATERIALS APPENDIX IX : METRIC CONVERSIONS APPENDIX X : BRITISH AND METRIC EQUIVALENTS APPENDIX XI : SI UNITS APPENDIX XII : SOME RELEVANT INDIAN STANDARDS REFERENCES AND FURTHER READING ACKNOWLEDGEMENTSDOCK AND HARBOUR ENGINEERING Detailed ContentsChapter 1 SEA AND TIDES 1-1 Tides 1-2 Tidal Levels and Changes in Sounding Datum Changes on Coast Changes in an Estuary or River 1-3 Tidal Theories 1-4 Tide Tables 1-5 Bores 1-6 Tidal Streams Exercise 1 Chapter 2 HYDROGRAPHIC SURVEYS AND CHARTS 2-1 Triangulation 2-2 Sounding Lines 2-3 Sextant, Station Pointer and Hi-Fix 2-4 Instruments for Sounding 2-5 Remote Sensing 2-6 Current Observations 2-7 Charts Exercise 2 Chapter 3 WINDS, WAVES AND CYCLONES 3-1 Winds 3-2 Waves 3-3 Significant Wave 3-4 Energy of Waves 3-5 Water Pressure 3-6 Cyclones Exercise 3 Chapter 4 SILTATION AND EROSION 4-1 Due to Wind 4-2 Due to Waves 4-3 Due to Tides 4-4 Littoral Drift 4-5 Erosion Exercise 4 Chapter 5 INVESTIGATIONS AND MODEL TESTS 5-1 Surveys 5-2 Meteorological Data 5-3 Oceanographic Data 5-4 Geological Data 5-5 Soil Investigation 5-6 Seismic Data 5-7 Model Testing 5-8 Local Resources Exercise 5 Chapter 6 SHIP FEATURES RELATED TO PORT PLANNING 6-1 Trends in Shipping 6-2 Ship Types 6-3 Hovercraft 6-4 Hydrofoil Boat 6-5 Multi-Hull Ship 6-6 Other Ships 6-7 Barges for Lighterage Working 6-8 World Shipping 6-9 Shipping Terminology 6-10 Ship Terms 6-11 Tonnage Relations 6-12 Design Ship 6-13 Ship Dimensions 6-14 Ship’s Gear 6-15 Special Features 6-16 Ship Costs Exercise 6 Chapter 7 TRAFFIC FORECASTING AND HINTERLAND 7-1 Hinterland 7-2 Traffic 7-3 Traffic Through GMB Ports 7-4 Growth Rates and Five Year Plans 7-5 Likely Trends 7-6 Traffic Forecasting 7-7 Methods of Forecasting Qualitative Methods Quantitative Methods 7-8 Trend Analysis 7-9 Traffic Forecasting by Curve Fitting and Method of Least Squares Fitting a Straight Line (The Least Square Line) Fitting a Parabola (The Least Square Parabola) Exercise 7 Chapter 8 HARBOUR LAYOUT 8-1 Harbour Types 8-2 Port Terms 8-3 Site Selection 8-4 Features of a Harbour Harbour Entrance Approach Channel Turning Basin Sheltered Basin Breakwaters Wharves and Quays Jetties and Piers Lock and Locked Basin Dry Docks and Slipways Ancillaries 8-5 Harbour Planning 8-6 Layout Exercise 8 Chapter 9 CHANNEL, BASIN AND BERTHS 9-1 Channel Approach Channel Channel Alignment Curves Stopping Distance 9-2 Ship Motions 9-3 Harbour Entrance Channel Depth Illustration Channel Width Manoeuvring Lane Bank Clearance Lane Width of Ship Clearance 9-4 Harbour Entrance Width 9-5 Harbour Basin Depth of Basin Berthing Length and Width Passage and Manoeuvring Area 9-6 Turning Basin 9-7 Anchorage and Off Shore Moorings 9-8 Berths Exercise 9 Chapter 10 BREAKWATERS 10-1 Vertical Wall Breakwaters 10-2 Design of Vertical Wall Breakwater 10-3 Rubble Mound Breakwater 10-4 Breakwater Pierheads 10-5 Breakwater Height 10-6 Breakwater Failures 10-7 Floating Breakwater Exercise 10 Chapter 11 WHARVES 11-1 Gravity Walls Dimensions of Wall 11-2 Slip Circles 11-3 Cross-Section of Wall 11-4 Masonry or Mass Concrete Wall 11-5 Wall on Wells 11-6 Wall of Precast Blocks 11-7 Considerations in Designing Wharf on Wells 11-8 Sheet Pile Walls Driving of Sheet Piles Illustrative Types Exercise 11 Chapter 12 JETTIES, DOLPHINS AND MOORINGS 12-1 Piles Timber Piles Steel Piles Precast R.C.C.
