Purpose and scope.
This manual establishes criteria for guidance of Corps of Engineers personnel in the planning and design of proposed military ports. It includes site selection and evaluation, layout of harbor facilities, coastal protection methods, pier and wharf layout and design, fender systems, mooring devices, dockside utilities, and cargo handling facilities. Based on current trends in the shipping industry, it is anticipated that up to 90 percent of all cargo arriving in future Theaters of Operation (TO) will be by containers. Basic considerations in container terminal design, storage and marshalling areas, and container handling facilities are also included. This manual does not apply to ammunition-loading terminals.
