RE: Florida Dock Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I do some dock design and found the 2 following reference books to be very useful:
"Marinas and Small Craft Harbors - 2nd Edition" by Bruce O. Tobiasson and Ronald C. Kollmeyer
ASCE Manuals & Reports on Engineering Practice No. 50 - "Planning and Design Guidelines for Small Craft Harbors" by ASCE

Subject: Florida Dock Design

Good morning,


I am trying to check design requirements for a small residential dock built on a small lake in Florida.  I am only finding information on loading for the deck area.  I am also interested in any requirements for railings, minimum elevations of the deck surface, overall geometric design guidelines, etc.


Thanks in advance!


Best Regards,
