Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to provide necessary information that will ensure continuing port operations during emergencies caused by military conflicts. Port construction, lessons learned, and port damages in previous military conflicts are presented. Technical information on state-of-the-art inspection techniques that may be used to rapidly determine the extent of damage caused to ports during hostile operations is presented and discussed. Major CONUS Continental United States and OCONUS Outside Continental United States container ports are inventoried and presented in Appendixes B through E. As-constructed facilities of port complexes are identified and data for planners to determine whether to repair the war-damaged port facilities or construct new facilities are provided. Author
