This manual provides guidance for the inspection, maintenance, and repair of waterfront fender systems and camels. It is an adjunct to the manual for Maintenance of Waterfront Facilities, MO–104. Specifications and standards are listed to assist the planners in selecting the appropriate materials and preventive maintenance procedures.
Inspection levels, methods, planning factors, and procedures are presented. The repair procedures discussed cover preventive measures, partial replacement, and total replacement concepts for timber, concrete, steel, and synthetic components. Each procedure is developed to guide the planners in the selection of the repair technique, inspection of field work for acceptability, and planning the follow–on inspection requirements.
