The original “Exposed Jetties Manual” compiled in 2004 by McConnell et al. has provided designers and owners of jetties / piers, and related structures with elevated decks, guidance on wave loads on decks and beams since it was published in 2004. That manual developed general guidance on the design of elevated decks subject to wave loadings from site experience, but also included new prediction methods for wave forces on beams and decks based on results from a dedicated series of physical model tests, discussed in 2002 by Tirindelli et al. Since that manual, further research information has become available, in particular from re-analysing the original test data to reduce uncertainty in the predictions, narrow the confidence bands, and reduce corruption by dynamic effects for short duration loadings. The suggested changes to formulae / coefficients were described in 2007 by Cuomo et al. Since then, further data have become available from laboratory tests on wave loads on bridge decks, on vertical walls (Cuomo et al. 2010) and on piles (Wienke & Oumeraci, 2005). This paper introduces the new edition of the “Exposed Jetties Manual”, reminding readers of the 1st edition, and then describing the principal changes for the 2nd edition.
