Quay wall stability and strength evaluation
Keywords:quay wall, quay wall strength, quay wall stability, quay wall evaluation.
In some ports terminals were created 40 or even more years ago and until now work very intensively. Dur-ing a long time exploitation of the quay walls, their stabil-ity and strength decrease and it is necessary to replace the existing quay walls: to renovate them or build new ones, however, there are some space or investments limitations, delayed decisions of renovation or building possibilities without decreasing capacity and productivity of the termi-nals. The article discusses possibilities of evaluation the stability and strength of the quay walls or replacing some of them with the minimum disturbance of the terminal activity; as well as the methodology of the evaluation, which can assist to increase or optimize technical parame-ters and capacity of the port quay walls.
