Technical Short Course
This eight-hour short course provides an introduction to the determination of vessel berthing and mooring requirements and design loads for fixed marine structures such as piers, wharves, dolphins, and other port and harbor structures. The material presented is applicable to offshore terminals as well but does not address design of free-swinging single point or spread moorings. The course is oriented toward providing civil/structural engineers and port and marine terminal operators necessary background information for designing and evaluating berthing and mooring structures. This course is offered with the option of purchasing “Design of Marine Facilities for the Berthing, Mooring & Repair of Vessels, 3rd Edition” at a package price.
This event requires an additional ticket. Attendees must be registered for the Conference (full or daily) in order to register for the short courses. Attendees will be able to earn professional development hours (PDHs).
