PRESTRESSED CONCRETE FENDER PILES: FENDER SYSTEM DESIGNS

This report reviews designs for prestressed concrete fender piles for use at navy piers. The two types of fender piles discussed are an energy-absorbing fender pile for use with camels and a reaction fender pile for use with foam-filled fenders. In addition, complete fender system designs incorporating either timber or steel walls with energy-absorbing prestressed concrete fender piles are presented. Detailed drawings of fenders and fender systems are included in an appendix.
