This conference on Civil Engineering in the Oceans is sponsored by the Technical Committee on Ocean Engineering (TCOE) of the Waterway, Port, Coastal and Ocean Division of ASCE in cooperation with the San Francisco Section and the Technical Committee on Waves and Wave Forces of ASCE, the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command and the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. The conference focused on areas of interest to designers?forces on structures from the environment. The ocean waves can be spectacular, intriguing, and continually elude complete classification. Hence approximately 41 of the 74 presentations have titles that explicitly use the word waves or subjects directly associated with them. Other areas of the ocean environment are equally important to the designer as it is readily recognized that in some regions forces due to soil movement or earthquake may even exceed those due to waves. We hope these papers will significantly advance the knowledge of environmental forces on structures.
