The book is designed to serve as a single source of reference, containing all existing technical data, methodology for selection of optimum fendering devices and recommended standards. It is hoped that this book will serve as a useful reference to the harbor master, port engineer, consultant engineer, the bridge owner and the Coast Guard officer engaged in bridge matters. The book is divided into the following chapters: I. (a) Factors Considered in the Design of Fendering Systems and, (b) Types of Fendering Systems; II. Types of Fendering Systems; III. Materials; IV. Design Parameters; V. Hand Computations; VI. Design Applications and Computers; VII. Conclusions; and VIII. Recommendations for Future Research. In addition, there are twelve appendices containing tables and figures representing the stiffness and energy characteristics of particular fenders at given deflection levels.
