Safe waterways: Fs154-40/2002E-PDF
a users guide to the design, maintenance and safe use of waterways.
"This document provides planners with a set of procedures to be used when determining waterway parameters required to provide efficient manoeuvrability with no less than minimum safety margins and allowances. Procedures are set forth for the determination of channel width, depth, side slope and curvature, as well as the alignment of channels. The guidelines have been developed for waterways utilized primarily by large traffic, such as tankers, general cargo and bulk carriers, and are not meant to replace more extensive analyses for the final channel design"--Introd., p. 1.
