Berthing Structures for Large Oil Tankers. Discussion on the paper* by G. E. Dent BSc(Eng) AMlStructE AMICE

Introducing the paper. Mr. Dent said he was very conscious of the fact that it contained very little on direct structural design. There were two reasons for this: firstly, the structural design work associated with oil terminals was conventional and straightforward with one or two exceptions which were dealt with in detail in the paper; secondly, the engineer was now finding it necessary to spend much of his time considering the broader aspects of engineering problems and the planning and economics of a structure were as important as its stability. Therefore he now intended to spend some time enlarging on general problems of planning and economics.
