Abstract:

The Advanced Pier Concepts Users Guide consolidates several Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory NCEL documents and sponsored studies, and other related documents, into one presentation to be used by shore facilities planners and designers in preparing studies, projects, plans and specifications for Navy piers. The Guide provides material on a wide range of subjects including New concepts for pier configuration including double-deck piers, floating piers, and utility galleries, Recommendations covering the methodology for determining the optimum pier width and main deck elevation Special structural considerations associated with double-deck, pile-supported and floating piers, Information on ship characteristics and berthing requirements including utilities capacities and proposed service locations, Innovative designs covering both electrical and mechanical services to ships, Information and recommendations on resilient fender systems, A new pier lighting concept, Information on deck fittings and access facilities, and A methodology for performing a pier design evaluation. The contents are a compilation of work accomplished under prior NCEL tasks as well as ongoing work being performed on pier systems. In addition, the Guide covers the overall results obtained from two Pier Designs WorkshopConferences as well as future work required to resolve current inadequacies in the design of Navy piers.
