    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    To provide designers, purchasers, authorities and manufacturers of structures in the marine environment with guidelines for the design of structures in a marine environment.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out guidelines for the design of structures in a marine environment. It is to be used in conjunction with the relevant Standards and provides recommendations additional to the requirements of these Standards.This Standard is intended to cover the design of near-shore coastal and estuarine structures, such as—jetties;wharves;berthing dolphins;floating berths;seawalls;breakwater structures, excluding rubble mound and floating types;boat ramps;laterally restrained floating structures; andbuilding substructures over water.This Standard is not intended to cover the design of—(A)pipelines;(B)marinas (see AS3962); (C)offshore oil and gas structures; (D)dredging and reclamation;(E)coastal engineering structures such as rock armoured walls, groynes, etc;(F)geometrical design of port and harbour infrastructure;(G)floating structures not permanently restrained, e.g., vessels, construction pontoons, barges.For buildings constructed over water, these guidelines apply to the structure up to and including the main deck level. The superstructure above main deck level should be designed in accordance with the relevant Australian Standards and relevant building regulations.
