The ongoing updating of BS 6349 represents a continuation of a very energetic phase of development of the suite of standard, and demonstrates the determination of British Standard to remain at the forefront of international engineering. Most practitioners will know that various parts of BS 6349 are regularly referenced in design and performance specifications globally. This 2020 PIANC British Standard Ongoing Developments Conference is targeted at presenting the work to date carried out to update BS 6349, where four main topics will be examined in detail:

  • Breakwaters BS 6349-Part 7;
  • Fender Materials and Design BS 6349-Part 1-4 & Part 4;
  • Jetties, Quay Walls and Dolphins BS 6349-Part 2;
  • Geotechnical BS 6349-Part 1-3.

Other updates on the BS 6349 set of standards will include BS 6349-6 and BS 6349-8.

Throughout four session spread over three weeks, specialists from different fields in the maritime sector, will be presenting the updates in relation to BS 6349.

Each session will deal with one topics area followed by a presentation of a worked example, led by industry experts an affording and opportunity to see exactly how the recommendations of BS 6349 are applied in practice. In the question and answer sessions following, delegates will have a chance to comment on how well BS 6349 works in these examples and therefore directly influence future upgrades to the standard suite.

It is recommended to any civil, port or coastal engineers involved in the design and planning of maritime facilities.

BS 6349 – Maritime Works Whats going on?

Chris Boysons, Chief Engineer Ports/Maritime, Jacobs

Chairman of BSI Committee CB/502 responsible for BS 6349

CB/502 is the BSi committee responsible for the BS 6349 – Maritime Works suite of standards. There are currently 11 individual standards which make up BS 6349 and these are in various phases of upgrade. Chris will briefly describe how the standards are managed, the extent of the standards and how they interlink. He will explain the update process and programme and will describe how the standards fit in, or sometimes don’t fit in, with the Eurocodes.

Developments in BS 6349 Part 7 Breakwaters and Coastal Protection

Simon Burchett, Associate Director, WSP

Committee member of BSI Committee CB/502 responsible for BS 6349

Simon led the development of BS 6349 Part 1.2 on Maritime Works, Assessment of Actions and is a member of the CEN project team TC 250/SC 1.T7 writing the new EN 1991-1-8 Eurocode on wave actions. Having steered Part 1.2 to publication in 2017, Simon’s attention has now moved to the updating of BS 6349 Part 7, which, having been published in 1991, is currently the oldest of the BS 6349 suite of standards. Simon will explain how the scope of this standard is being extended from only breakwaters to also include coastal protection structures, and harmonising the advice given here to take account of the interface with BS 6349 Part 1.2 and early incorporation of new design approaches proposed for the forthcoming Eurocode.

Plans for enhancing BS 6349 Part 8 RoRo Ramps, Linkspans and Walkways Systems

Tim Davies, Global Sector Director for Passenger & Vehicle Terminals, Royal HaskoningDHV

Chairman of BS 6349 Part 8 drafting panel.

BS 6349 Part 8 is now the second oldest of the current set of standards, having been first published in 2007. It is regularly referenced in many international projects and its expanding use demonstrates its importance.  However, while the majority of the guidance is standing the test of time, it is necessary to orient the standard to face towards the Eurocodes in harmony with the remaining suite of BS 6349 and also to take account of the continuing and astonishing changes in ship design that are leading to ever bigger RoRo vessels and cruise ships with large overhanging structures. There is even a need to review terminology, particularly in the field of walkway systems, now increasingly known as Sea Port Boarding Bridges (SPBB).

Moving BS 6349 Part 4 Fendering and Mooring Systems, to the next level

Peter Beamish, Technical Director, Royal HaskoningDHV

Committee member of BSI Committee CB/502 responsible for BS 6349.

BS 6349 Part 4 was updated most recently in 2014 and is internationally one of the most frequently used standards for fenders and moorings. Ongoing research by PIANC Working Group 211 on fender design and testing including new work carried out by the PIANC UK sub-group is highlighting issues in fender design and performance testing. Peter Beamish led the panel responsible for the 2014 version and is now leading the development of this standards to the next stage. This process requires harmonising with the updated material testing and specification guidance to be included in BS 6349 Part 1.4.

16:40hrs – QUESTIONS

16:45hr

Testing and enhanced material specification for elastomeric fenders Updating BS 6349 Part 1.4, Materials to improve reliability –

Ben Bullock, Associate Director, Jacobs

Member of BS 6349 Part 1.4 drafting panel

With a much wider geographic spread of manufacturing availability, it is perhaps not surprising that the standards of fender manufacture have been found to deviate from the previous, sometimes implied, standards of reliability. It is therefore time to grasp this issue and BS 6349 Part 1.4, (Maritime Works, General, Materials) is being updated to included much expanded guidance on fender materials and traceability in quality control. Ben Bullock, as a panel member and a designer with direct experience of the problems caused by these issues will explain the updates to BS 6349 Part 1.4 and how these are focused on mitigating risk in fender manufacture.

What’s coming in the 2nd Generation of Eurocode 7

Andrew Bond, Director, Geocentrix Ltd

Immediate past Chair of TC250/SC7

Work on developing the 2nd Generation of Eurocodes is almost complete, with a new version of Eurocode 7 set to be published in three parts: General rules, Ground properties, and Geotechnical structures. The old code’s complicated Design Approaches have been replaced by a more flexible reliability system based either on material or resistance factors, chosen according to the structure being design. Specific probabilities of exceedance have been set for water pressures, hopefully leading to more consistent design outcomes for water retaining structures. As Chairman of the committee responsible for Eurocode 7 from 2010 to 2019, Andrew Bond has played a leading role in setting the direction and shaping the content of the 2nd Generation of Eurocode 7. His talk will concentrate on the key changes that are coming in the 2nd Generation of Eurocode 7.

Continuing the maritime geotechnical journey – Updating BS 6349 Part 1.3, Geotechnical

James Apted, Technical Director, Atkins

Committee member of BSI Committee CB/502 responsible for BS 6349.

In 2010 a decision was taken to split the existing and very substantial BS 6349 Part 1, Maritime Structure, General, into four separate parts, and Part 1.3, Maritime Works, Code of Practice for Geotechnical Design was the first to reach publication in 2012. Geotechnical design practice has been changing considerably during that time, most notably the ever-increasing use of finite element software such as PLAXIS, largely because it often results in significantly more economic solutions. The nature and operation of such software means that guidance is needed to allow it to be used in conjunction with the limit state approach of Eurocode 7. Hence the need for to update this standard is plain and James will give a presentation explaining the approach being used to bring this important part of the BS 6349 suite of standards into alignment with current practice.

16:55hrs – QUESTIONS

17:05hr

Worked Example and Questions

Using Finite Element Software in Quay Wall Design

Matteo Alessandrini, Lead Geotechnical Engineer at Baker Hughes

Member of BS 6349 Part 1.3 drafting panel

Matteo will give a presentation on the use of PLAXIS in the geotechnical design of a quay wall, showing one way in which compliance with Eurocode 7 and the requirements of BS 6349 can be demonstrated.

Update on BS 6349 Part 6 Floating Structures

Gareth Evans, Managing Director, Constructex

Committee member of BSI Committee CB/502 responsible for BS 6349.

BS 6349 Part 6 is presently withdrawn in order to update it to match with current practice but demand for a replacement has been intense. Gareth Evans is an experienced practitioner in maritime engineering with extensive experience of floating structures and is leading the team to revise and update this long-missed standard. He will explain how the guidance is being targeted at key areas such as stability of pontoons, interconnections between floating bodies, the need for suitable shock absorbing arrangements and other features.

Highlighting BS 6349 Part 2, Quay Walls, Jetties and Dolphins

Chris Boysons, Chief Engineer Ports/Maritime, Jacobs

Chairman of BSI Committee CB/502 responsible for BS 6349

2019 was the year of publication of the much-awaited update to BS 6349 Part 2 on the design of quay walls, jetties and dolphins. A key element of this was the harmonising of this standard with the newly complete BS 6349 Part 1.2, such that Part 2’s previous role as “controlling standard” for maritime structural design has now been removed and this function passed to BS 6349 Part 1.2. As such this is a major rationalisation of the BS 6349 suite of standards. In addition, much updated advice on all types of quay wall and jetty structures has been included to ensure that it retains its role as one of the most referred to standards in the maritime civil engineering industry

16:55hrs – QUESTIONS
