Handbook Quay Walls


This new edition of the handbook of Quay Walls provides the reader with essential knowledge for the planning, design, execution and maintenance of quay walls, as well as general information about historical developments and lessons learned from the observation of ports in various countries. Technical chapters are followed by a detailed calculation of a quay wall based on a semi-probabilistic design procedure, which applies the theory presented earlier.

This handbook is intended to prevent extensive discussions during the design and construction stages of projects involving quay walls. It is part of a series of Dutch port infrastructure design recommendations that include the Flexible Dolphins handbook and the Jetties and Wharfs handbook.
