Syllabus
Prerequisites: Hydraulic
Target skills and knowledge: The course aims at giving basic concepts of maritime hydraulics and at giving the guidelines to design many coastal and maritime structures. At the end of the course, the student will be able to design the most common structures capable to defend harbours from wave attacks (breakwaters) as well as to design internal structures (jetties and quay walls).
Examination methods: Oral
Assessment criteria: Understanding the developed arguments and ability to process them
Course unit contents: Introduction and definitions. Laws referred to coastal areas, financial issues. Winds, currents, sea level oscillations. Wind waves: theoretical approach. Wave generation, forecasting and hindcasting. Wave propagation from offshore to coastal areas and associates phenomena. Wave-structures interactions. Ships and navigation issues. Harbour layouts and mathematical/physical models. Breakwaters types and design. Jetties types and design. Quay walls types and design. Ship traffics. Fenders and bollards. Dry docks. Channels and harbours dredging
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: in class lessons and laboratory
Additional notes about suggested reading: Lessons minutes
