Description: Geotechnical Report
Abstract: The military is dependent on supplying large volumes of cargo in the theater of operations through the use of strategic ports and their facilities. Port facilities are potential targets for hostile forces. Ports can be expected to be attacked in various ways to render the facilities inoperative or to deny access to the facilities. Repairs should be conducted as quickly as possible to restore damaged areas for the transfer of supplies fron support ships to shore facilities and inland. The study herein analyzes, develops, and recommends concepts that can be used for the expedient repair of piers, wharves , and quay walls. Specific areas examined include the underwater substructure from the mudline up to the decking interface. Underwater support structure repairs or replacements are necessary before the decks can be repaired and subsequently used.
