THE LOAD ON AN ANCHOR CHAIN AT THE MOMENT OF FREEING THE ANCHOR FROM THE SEA BOTTOM

The article presents a method of calculating the resisting force against the motion of an anchor chain through the hawse pipe and chain stopper. The purpose of the calculation is to find the value of the load on the chain at the moment of freeing the anchor from the sea bottom. This load is the basis for determining the required pulling torque characteristics of the electric motor driving the anchor winch.
