Wave Loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     I happen to have reviewed a barge dock recently in Venezuela and the 
     design criteria listed the following standards:
     API RP 2A, "Recommended Practice for Planning, Designing, and 
     Constructing Fixed Offshore Platforms", 19th Edition.  This standard 
     will be used for the calculation of wave loads.
     API RP 2A, Same Title, 20th Edition.  This standard will be used for 
     steel design and other offshore design, fabrication, or installation 
     ACI 357R, "Guide for the Design and Construction of Fixed Offshore 
     Concrete Structures".  This standard will be used for the operating 
     and storm condition load factors for the deign of offshore concrete 
     Hope this helps,

     Dear colleagues: 
     I need to design a marine pier for boats up tu 100 mtons.
     I would like to know which applicable code mentions the wawe loads and 
     impact loads.
