PROTECTION AND SECURING OF DECK STOWED CONTAINERS

The great benefits and economies attained through containerization have been offset somewhat by damage to deck-stowed containers. This paper outlines considerations to be examined in designing systems for securing and protecting containers stowed on the weather deck. The general lack of agreement about the minimum requirements of an adequate securing system is due in part to the absence of an accurate method for calculating ship motions and inertia forces acting on the containers. The paper discusses the stress-strain relationships between lashing wires and the container structures, and points out the necessity for adequate safety factors.
