Abstract
The shipping industry evolution over the last decades has led to growing structural and operational problems, in particular, for old marinas with lower depths to hosts present ships and with higher drafts and power of engines. The increase in capacity, size, power and self-propulsion of present ships is the main cause behind morphodynamic sea bed changes in harbour basins. This is producing two different but linked problems: scouring effects near the structures, affecting their stability, and se...
