Design of Marine Structures


Marine Strutures are defined as those Structures in full or partial contact with Sea Water, as against Riverine Structures which are those in contact only with fresh water. This distinction is necessary as the marine salt water environment, together with wind and wave actions contribute a very harsh environment for construction materials and special care should be taken in their designs, construction and subsequent maintenance. This section will discuss on the design of Marine Structures such as those used in Ports and Harbours, such as Wharfs, Jetties, Retaining Walls and their associated structural elements.

Types of Marine Structures

Below are some of more common structures in the Marine Environment

Use of Reinforced Concrete

Without doubt, reinforced concrete is the main construction materials used for Wharfs, Jetties, Retaining Walls, Cassions, as being most resilient, and if designed and constructed properly, can withstand harsh environment and if maintained properly can last for many years.
