TOWARD IMPROVING THE RELIABILITY OF ANCHOR CHAIN AND ACCESSORIES

This paper will present an approach for improving the reliability of mooring systems for ships and mobile offshore drilling units. An analysis of damage surveys indicates that the most cost-effective way of increasing reliability would be by improvement of selective components. To increase reliability will involve considerations beyond those in existing specifications.
