SHIP COLLISION AND FENDERING OF OFFSHORE CONCRETE STRUCTURES

The first part of the paper gives a broad outline of the risk for collision between offshore platforms and ships, and discusses how the risk can be reduced. The second part describes a fender proposal for protecting a concrete platform of the condeep design, which absorbs and distributes the impact force over a large area. The last section gives a case study of a selected ship/platform system. Possible impact velocities are calculated and impact forces are found from a study of energy absorption in the ship, fender and platform. Order from NSFI as No. 17275.
