Seismic analysis port design

Cohere Consultants has carried out a number of earthquake analyses on behalf of CDR International for a new container terminal and transshipment port in Tibar Bay, East Timor.

The client for CDR International is CHEC.  CDR has been engaged for a number of implementation optimisations, whereby Cohere Consultant was able to provide specialist advice on seismic design.

Part of the earthquake analysis was about optimalisation of the land reclamation to be carried out using stone columns. The other part was a liquefaction and stability analysis of a borrow area to be dredged to extract material for the land reclamation.
