APPENDIX B GENERAL DESIGN CRITERIA FOR . . DREDGED NAVIGATIONAL FACILITIES In 1972, the Permanent International Association of Navigation Congresses (PIANC) organized a commission to develop criteria for the reception of large vessels (IOTC, 1973~. Six years later, a PIANC working group again studied the requirements of large vessels (200,000 DWT and greater), and published recommendations for port design (ICORELS, 1980), as did a working group of the International Association of Ports and Harbors (COLS, 1981~. A review of PIANC guidelines is now under way, under the guidance of a new working group. The recommendations of these international organizations include guidelines for the dimensions of channels and maneuvering areas, and also address forces of the physical environment, equipment, and training. Maritime nations have developed general design criteria: those of Canada--TERMPOL--are based on prevention of oil pollution from marine casualties (Canadian Coast Guard, 1977~. The general guidelines developed for ports and harbors in Japan (Bureau of Ports and Harbours, 1980) are detailed, reflecting the economic significance of ports to the country, its challenging natural environment, and the need to balance economical design and construction and safety margins. The general design criteria used in the United States are developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. These were recently updated (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 1983~. Succeeding tables and figures describe and compare these general criteria. It should be understood that all these sets of criteria acknowledge the importance of "~1) the several site-specific factors of great importance to design, (2) the need for consultations with shipowners, pilots, and others, and (3) the need to employ analysis and design tools" (Crane, 1983~. 144
