Abstract

There has been a huge growth in port and terminal developments in recent years in developing countries to accommodate the expansion in container, oil and gas (including LPG and LNG developments), bulk and other general cargo trade which in turn enables economic growth. Designers often use traditional design techniques to develop these schemes. In this paper we describe an innovative approach to evaluating the design of a port facility that allows the designer to take account of key physical effects and use them in optimising the design.
