INTRODUCTION Of paramount importance in promoting the growth of Kuwait to the front ranks of the oil producing nations has been the role played by the oil exporting terminals. Such an installation is the Kuwait Oil Company's South Pier, Fig. 1 which was commissioned in 1949, then being the largest oil loading terminal of its type in the world. The pier is an all‐welded open steel structure built in an asymetrical T shape with an approach roadway reaching 4,410 feet into the sea; the T head comprising the oil and cargo piers is 3,882 feet in length overall. The total structure is carried upon some 4,000 steel piles, each one a 14in. H beam section weighing 73 lb./ft. and averaging 90 feet in length. The total quantity of all materials used in the construction of the South Pier was just short of 38,000 tons.
