"The city of Istanbul is situated on the southern entrance of the Bosphorus which separates Asia from Europe; at the same time it is the only strait that leads to the Black Sea. Istanbul is the city that connects Europe-Asia highways and railways. These features show that Istanbul is a very important port. The Golden Horn and the southern end of the Bosphorus constitute a natural harbor which has been in use for many years. Although the natural harbor has served its purpose in the past, the present conditions necessitate the presence of a new harbor...One economical method of improving the old harbor would be to construct a supplementary harbor to handle some of the shipping and thus relieve the congestion. Haydarpasa is a favorable location for such a harbor...The purpose of this study is to design a suitable breakwater for the proposed harbor at Haydarpasa and thus make it economical to supplement the old harbor there"--Introduction, page 1-2.
