Morroco, Africa Fender systems should be self-protective and reliably protect ships and structures. They should be long-lasting, requiring minimum maintenance, to withstand the harsh environment in which they operate. As stated in the British Standard*, fender design should be entrusted to ‘appropriately qualified and experienced people’. Fender engineering requires an understanding of many areas: * BS6349 : – Code of Practice for Design of Fendering and Mooring Systems. ❙ Civil construction methods ❙ teel fabrications S ❙ aterial properties M ❙ ealth and safety H ❙ nvironmental factors E ❙...

This guide addresses many of the frequently asked questions which arise during fender design. All methods described are based on the latest recommendations of PIANc as well as other internationally recognized codes of practice. Methods are also adapted to working practices within Trelleborg and to suit Trelleborg products. Further design tools and utilities including generic specifications, energy calculation spreadsheets, fender performance curves and much more can be requested from Trelleborg Marine Systems’ local offices. EXCEPTIONS These guidelines do not encompass unusual...

Why Fender? ‘There is a simple reason to use fenders: it is just too expensive not to do so’. These are the opening remarks of PIANC and remain the primary reason why every modern port invests in protecting their structures with fender systems. Well-designed fender systems will reduce construction costs and will contribute to making the berth more efficient by improving turn-around times. It follows that the longer a fender system lasts and the less maintenance it needs, the better the investment. It is rare for the very cheapest fenders to offer the lowest long term cost. Quite the...

The Design Process Many factors contribute to the design of a fender system: Ships Ship design evolves constantly – shapes change and many vessel types are getting larger. Fender systems must suit current ships and those expected to arrive in the foreseeable future. Structures Fenders impose loads on the berthing structure. Many berths are being built in exposed locations, where fender systems can play a crucial role in the overall cost of construction. Local practice, materials and conditions may influence the choice of fender systems. Approach Many factors will affect how vessels approach...

Environment Typical berthing locations Berthing structures are located in a variety of places from sheltered basins to unprotected, open waters. Local conditions will play a large part in deciding the berthing speeds and approach angles, in turn affecting the type and size of suitable fenders. Non-tidal basins Tidal basins With minor changes in water level, these locations are usually sheltered from strong winds, waves and currents. Ship sizes may be restricted due to lock access. Larger variations in water level (depends on location) but still generally sheltered from winds, waves and...

Ship Types General cargo ship ❙ Prefer small gaps between ship and quay to minimize outreach of cranes ❙ Large change of draft between laden and empty conditions ❙ May occupy berths for long periods ❙ Coastal cargo vessels may berth without tug assistance Bulk carrier ❙ Need to be close to berth face to minimize shiploader outreach ❙ Possible need to warp ships along berth for shiploader to change holds ❙ Large change of draft between laden and empty conditions ❙ Require low hull contact pressures unless belted Container ship ❙ Flared bows are prone to strike shore structures ❙ Increasing...
