Methodology for manufacturing of ports structures (Volume III)

Author(s) Information

Khelalfa Houssam is a researcher in Civil, Ggotechnical & Coastal Engineering, at LGCE Laboratory University of Jijel in Algeria and School of Civil Engineering & Surveying of Portsmouth University in UK. He is the author of several science articles and books, he is a reviewer on international journals.


The purpose of this book is to present step-by-step requirements and methodology for the fabrication of port and marine structures with details to build high quality vertical breakwaters (caissons) in accordance with project specifications, applicable codes and standards. In this third part (Volume III); We started with Directive and Recommendations for marine construction works. Then we presented with details how to do and apply the Methods of Construction of Vertical Breakwaters (Caissons), such as; Construction on Floating Dock, the JARLAN Caisson and Protection Vertical Dykes. After, we present with details how to make and apply the Slip form Construction, such as; Installation of gantry house and sliding formwork systems For the production of caissons, and Methodology of manufacture of the caisson (vertical Breakwaters) by Slip form. Then we presented with details how to do and apply the methods of repairing the caissons. Finally; we present with details how to make and apply the Methodologies of realization of the main elements and works of a port.
