This is a collection of the technical papers presented at the Ports '92 Conference held in July 1992 in Seattle, Washington. Initiated in 1977, this Conference is the sixth in a series and was co-sponsored by the Engineering Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the U.S. Section of the Permanent International Association of Navigation Congresses (PIANC). Authors, although predominantly from the United States, are also from such varied locations as Japan, China, the Netherlands, Mexico, Norway, and Canada. Paper topics are varied, and include such subjects as wharf and pier design, container terminals, bulk and neobulk terminals, liquid bulk terminals, cargo handling equipment and systems, geotechnical and environmental issues, dredging, marine facilities, and port rehabilitation and upgrade. These papers provide a glimpse of the present and the future to the reader, by introducing them to technically-advanced, innovative information that can be utilized by ports and industry in the next century.
