20802083 - DESIGN OF HARBOURS AND MARITIME STRUCTURES

Design of harbours aims at providing knowledge and competences for the design of a complex civil infrastructure, with specific reference to a maritime terminal.
A detailed knowledge of the following topics is provided: 1) main maritime terminals; 2) main maritime structures typologies and design methods; 3) planning and management of engineering design activities; 4) meteoceanographic data statistical analysis and models for the wave propagation into harbours; 5) oral and written presentation methods.
After the course the students shall be able of: 1) specifying the requirements of the project, identifying the constraints and the relevant codes; 2) planning the design activities; 3) developing statistical analyses on meteoceanographic data, to provide inputs for the design activities; 4) applying numerical models for the wave penetration into harbours; 5) defining alternative design solutions and select the optimal one; 6) using cad software and designing the main maritime structures, also providing a preliminary plan of the construction activities; 7) presenting orally the design and writing accurate reports; 8) working in team.
