This is a collection of the technical papers presented at the triennial Ports '89 Conference held in Boston, Massachusetts in May 1989. Authors, although predominantly from the United States, are also from Canada, Great Britain, and Cyprus. The papers discuss such subjects as planning small boat harbors; inspecting waterfront structures; designing container terminal pavements; dredging, modeling, and designing container terminals; developing petroleum facilities; studying waves and wave breakers; refitting military waterfront facilities; selecting construction materials; investigating geotechnical design problems; and constructing structures in lakes and rivers. With this variety of subject coverage, the civil engineer can see what was done in the past and what the possibilities are for the future.
