Preparation of Guidelines for Rapid Assessment of Port Structures
There are a number of harbor and port facilities in southern and northern parts of Iran which have been in service for a number of years. Many of these facilities have not been maintained very well during these years. On the hand due to high seismicity of most regions in the country, the need for inspection and assessment of these facilities has been recognized. Hence the Transportation Research Center in the first phase has awarded a contract to JDD to prepare a Code of Practice for rapid assessment of port structures. This code addresses all aspect of an assessment from data collection, inspection, analysis and conclusion.
