Ports '86 had the theme of Innovations in Port Engineering and Development with keynote speakers looking ahead to Port Development in the 1990's. The program was purposely kept very broad with subject matter varying from marinas and waterfront parks to container terminals and tanker facilities. The intent of Ports '86 was to stimulate new ideas in port engineering. The papers were not intended to provide cook-book solutions to port design, but to describe solutions to past port development problems and, hopefully, to stimulate creative engineering to solve future problems. Other subjects include port planning, terminal pavements, Navy facilities, wharf design, small boat harbors, vessel characteristics and operations, dry bulk terminals, fender systems, and channel and harbor design. Geotechnical engineering aspects are also covered.

Subject Headings: Ports and harbors | Pavement design | Terminal facilities | Building design | Hydraulic design | Geotechnical engineering | Innovation | Parks
