The Study on the Construction of Dockyard
by Assoc.Prof.Dr.Direk Lawansiri et al (1987).
The research studied the construction of
dockyard. The data were collected from the construction site for the purpose of studying
the sequence of construction, problems during construction and the method of solving
those problems, rate and duration of construction, total cost of construction project and
etc. From the raw data the construction model were set for further analysis.
The construction cost was compared to several types of dockyard using the gross tonnage as
an indicator. The comparison of construction cost between each portion of dockyard
was made e.g. The construction cost of the floating pontoon compared to the cost of the
It can be concluded from the studied that
the main problem encountered during the dockyard construction are tides and
activities of clearing the site. This was because in the clearing activities the fill
material, avoiding the shore failure, must be removed. The critical activities in the
construction are the clearing work, piling work, sheet piling work and excavation work.
The construction cost for basin and floating pontoon are about the same for 3,000 gross
tonnage of dockyard.
This research was conducted and written by
Dr. Direk Lawansiri, Dr.Ping Kunnawatsatit, and Mr.Peamsak Boonyasartpun.
