By F. Vasco Costa (auth.), Eivind Bratteland (eds.)

Two earlier NATO complicated research Institutes (ASI) on berthing and mooring of ships were held; the 1st in Lisboa, Portugal in 1965, and the second one at Wallingford, England in 1973. those ASls have contributed considerably to the lower than­ status and improvement of fenders and mooring, as have works via Oil businesses foreign Marine discussion board (1978) and PIANC (1984). advancements in send sizes and construction of recent really good terminals at very uncovered destinations have necessitated extra advances within the mixed mooring and fendering know-how. Exploration and exploitation of the continental cabinets have additionally caused new and hard difficulties, advancements and suggestions. Offshore actions and advancements have in­ fluenced and better wisdom approximately either ships and different floating constructions that are berthed and/or moored less than quite a few environmental stipulations. The scope of this ASI used to be to provide contemporary advances in berth­ ing and mooring of ships and mooring of floating offshore constructions, concentrating on types and instruments on hand with a view in the direction of defense and aid of frequencies and effects of accidents.

Example text

Mathematical modelling is explained in refs. 5,9,10,11,20 and 25. A rational approach based on probabilities was developed based on tests in EUROPORT (1). Fig. 1 shows a 1 in 3,000 probability against displacement dia~ gram (1). It indicates the considerable larger unit energies for smaller vessels. Balfour (1) emphasizes that the results from the PORT OF ROTTERDAM field tests do not necessarily apply to other more exposed ports. But the trend however, is probably general. It is also suggested that the energy value required for a jetty or pier situated in a harbor basin can be read directly off Fig.

It is logical to assume that a proper mooring and fendering system will be able to replace a breakwater - or at least part of it. According to Bruun (4) this was actually done at HADERA, ISRAEL, as mentioned in detail later. This open pier intallation for coal bulkers up to 120,000 DWT has now functioned satisfactorily since 1981. 3 km trestle. As the breakwater had to be located in 24 m depth with wave action up to Hs = 6 m, often arriving at angles with the shore of ± 15 degrees, it became very expensive.

Many accidents have occurred, while the vessel was at the berth. Reports from these accidents describe how fenders contributed to or reinforced oscillating movements of the vessel by "buffeting action". It is apparent from reports and experience that most of the presently available fenders are inadequate, but in varying deqrees.
