Quay Walls for Deep Water
H.-H. Sass; Fachhochschule Hamburg, Germany

The development of quay walls for deep water is described, especially with constructions in the Hamburg harbour. According to the general development of harbour facilities different typed of combined walls are presented like LK walls, Peiner walls and pipe piling. Recent quay walls are described. The problem was to build them in front of existing and still usable quay walls. Besides the theoretical parameters for dimensioning and construction the experience and the data of measurements on quay walls should be used to find effective and profitable constructions.
