ESTIMATION OF WIND LOADS ON SHIPS IN WIND WITH A STRONG GRADIENT

A method is proposed to estimate the wind loading of ships in non-uniform air flow. Thus, the influence of the local wind in obstructed areas can be considered and if wind shelter is necessary for safe manoeuvring, suitable measures can be taken. The method is based on wind-tunnel tests. Results are given using statistical terms. Case studies of a car carrier and a floating dock are presented.
