ULTIMATE ENERGY DESIGN OF PRESTRESSED CONCRETE FENDER PILING

WITH THE DESIDERATUM TO MEET THE ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR FENDER PILING BY BEST UTILIZING PRESTRESSED LIGHTWEIGHT-AGGREGATE CONCRETE, THE WRITERS HAVE ADVANCED RATIONAL APPROACHES TO (1) THE EVALUATION OF KINETIC ENERGY DUE TO SHIP IMPACT, USING EFFECTIVE MASS OF BERTHING VESSELS AND THEIR APPROACHING VELOCITIES; (2) DESIGN-ENERGY CRITERIA AND ENERGY FACTOR; (3) BASIC RELATIONS OF ENERGY ABSORBING CAPACITIES; (4) ENERGY ABSORBING CAPACITIES OF PRESTRESSED CONCRETE FENDER PILING; (5) OPTIMUM PRESTRESS; AND (6) ULTIMATE ENERGY DESIGN, INSTEAD OF THE USUAL ULTIMATE-STRENGTH DESIGN, TO SPECIFICALLY MEET THE SERVICE CONDITIONS OF FENDER PILING. /ASCE/
