Marine Port Structure Guidance

The Port infrastructure in mature, well developed, countries is often over 100 years old, long before international or national marine construction standards of build were fully documented and routinely updated as is commonplace with modern construction methods.

This bulletin aims to provide an overview of the key issues typically affecting Marine Port Structures and provides guidance as to current technical references.
It also provides a brief overview on the maintenance requirements for port structures and the construction materials used, specifically concrete, steel, stone and timber and issues arising from the use of these materials.
