Abstract

Composite structures combined steel plates and reinforced concrete with shear connectors have been applied to port and harbor facilities in Japan since the early 1980s.Composite structures have such superior merits as high strength, large rigidity, watertightness, light weight, and rapid construction in marine areas. This paper presents the outline of some facilities made of composite structures and their design work. The facilities described herein are a floating type breakwater, a gravity type seawall, and an undersea tunnel.
