Hi Im designing some navigation piles (free ended single laterally loaded piles) to protect a water inlet structure for a water treatment works. The inlet is constructed on the River Walton (UK). I need to know the magnitude of force that the navigation piles will be subject from a stray boat or maybe floating debris, logs etc. I have no marine knowledge as I am a geotechnical engineer. Any advice would be most appreciated.
