Inspection, Repair and Rehabilitation of Marine Structures

14 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply the learned methods and strategies in the repair and rehabilitation of concrete, steel and timber marine structures
  • Develop repair and rehabilitation programs for existing marine structures

Marine structures, including piers, docks, wharves, seawalls, and breakwaters, are vital components of the shipping, passenger ferry, cruise line, and fishing industries. Various components of a structure typically begin to deteriorate soon after construction and require inspection and maintenance to identify deteriorated components before the impacts compromise the structure’s performance. Many existing marine structures are past their expected service lives and require inspection and rehabilitation to remain safe and functional. Marine structures can also sustain physical damage due to overloading, ship impacts, adverse weather conditions, and environmental effects.

After conducting a structural condition inspection, engineers must develop a repair, rehabilitation, and maintenance program necessary to meet operational requirements and maintain or extend the remaining service life of the marine structure.
