MOORING OF SHIPS TO PIERS AND WHARVES
|Author(s)||Mooring Analysis Task Committee|
|Publisher||American Society of Civil Engineers|
This Manual was prepared and published with the ultimate goal to provide readers with some general guidance on how they can determine forces which act upon wharves, piers, and all other fixed structures due to berthed ships and also to provide some necessary background for safe and efficient fixed mooring design practice. The intention of the authors was to provide ships with a "safe berth" with sound and adequate mooring arrangements and structures. However, this book is not to be considered a standalone mooring analysis and pier design document since the subject matter is very complex and the variety of ships and other marine facility types with specific requirements is very wide.
