ON THE DETERMINATION OF IMPACT FORCES, MOORING FORCES AND MOTIONS OF SUPERTANKERS AT MARINE TERMINAL

This paper provides a method to predict: dynamic response of supertankers moored at sea-berth excited by water waves/ and related mooring forces and impact forces induced to berthing structures. Significant results included: effects of dolphin-fender stiffness on hydrodynamic mass, effects of elastic characteristics and initial tensions of mooring lines on impact forces, mooring forces, and ship motions, and effects of wave characteristics on these forces and motions. The information will assist planners, designers, and operators of marine terminals for supertankers.
