oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Some thoughts on the economics of dry docks : railway and harbour engineering

Volume 20, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The following comments are a distillation of forty years of experience with dry docks and the technology of dry docks. As such they are pragmatic and much of the basis has been developed as part of feasibility studies or the development of actual projects. Some aspects have been included in refereed papers and are hence persuasive, but a word of caution: these comments have not yet been formally examined in a scientific way. The most significant aspect I foresee comes from the relatively simplistic presentation given here. In practice there may well be a great deal of variation from individual case to individual case.
