Water transportation, Civil Engineering

Water Transportation:

Water transport, in its various forms, is one of the most efficient forms of transport, because of low fuel consumption, low environmental pollution and high record of safety. Its main disadvantage is its low speed. It is ideally suited for international trade and transport and along coastline and rivers. In this Unit, you will learn about the civil engineering facilities needed to operate water transport.

Objectives

After studying this unit, you should be able to

  • familiarise with the various civil engineering structures that are part of water transportation,
  • have a knowledge of the water transport sector in India, the various structures like docks, harbours, jetties, transit shed and wharves, Inland Water Transport, and
  • understand the cargo handling facilities needed for water transport systems.
