Abstract

This paper reviews the respective concepts and purposes of a range of hurricane protection barriers. The structural components of each type of barrier are discussed and common variants of the forms used in each barrier are included in the discussion. The advanced analysis used in the design of hurricane protection barriers is also reviewed with reference to purpose and procedure. Finally, the associated construction is discussed in terms of the construction sequence and advanced construction methodology.
