Waterfront Facilities Inspection and Assessment

Waterfront Inspection Task Committee; Edited by Ronald E. Heffron, P.E.

Supplies engineers with guidelines and tools for inspecting and evaluating the condition of waterfront structures located in seawater and freshwater environments. Inspections are essential to an effective waterfront facility management program that ensures public safety, reliable service, environmental protection, and reduced maintenance costs. Because distress to a waterfront structure may not be recognizable from above water, the inspection must include an assessment of the extent and severity of deterioration from above and underwater.


Journal of Waterway, Port, Coastal, and Ocean Engineering

The Journal is an ideal choice for the publication and dissemination of archival contributions dealing with topics including dredging, floods, sediment transport, tides, wind waves and storm surge, tsunamis, climate change, rising sea level, extreme weather events and other hazards that affect shorelines, waterways, estuaries, and ports and harbors, as well as efforts to mitigate the impact of such hazards.
