ADVANCES IN BERTHING AND MOORING OF SHIPS AND OFFSHORE STRUCTURES
|D O W N L O A D|
The major part of the content of this publication is build on the basis of on the invaluable contributions that have been made by the leading experts in the field. The book starts with the historical background providing the information about the developments of mooring and berthing, followed by the statistics of the accidents happened in the course of mooring and berthing, addressed together with the application of risk analysis techniques.
The marine terminal technology is addressed in the next chapter of this volume, and the authors also touch the winch berthing/mooring and recent technical developments. In general, the chapters of this perfectly compiled work are covering such the important aspects of mooring and berthing as fender forces acting on the berthing structures and their prediction, wind fluctuations, impact evaluation methods, modeling of wave propagation any means of computers, field observations, motions of moored vessels, optimization as well as the important safety considerations related to the design of different station keeping systems, motion simulation, probabilistic approach, virtual mass coefficient, long waves and rough weather conditions, plus the effects that the mooring lines commonly have on vessel motions, asymptotic methods, fenders used in different countries, future developments, wave drift forces and many others.
