Sample text

The action of putting the engines astern to reduce speed tends to cause lateral movement, or sheer, in the vessel, for which an allowance must be made. The shorter the stopping distance provided, the greater must be the width of the channel. Turning basins Most vessels are turned either just before berthing or when leaving the berth. The minimum area required to perform this manoeuvre will depend on whether the vessel has tug assistance. The following minimum diameters of turning basin are generally accepted (Hay, 1968): Diameter of turning basin With tug assistance Without tug assistance 2L 4L where L is the length of the largest vessel.

However, the following points are of use in forming preliminary estimates of the areas required. Stopping distances When a vessel enters a port from the open sea, or from a curved approach channel, it will have a certain minimum velocity which is sufficient for it to maintain steerage. Before manoeuvring to the berth can take place, the speed of the vessel must be reduced to virtually zero. The distance required to perform this manoeuvre depends on the speed and size of the vessel. The speed of a vessel entering a port varies considerably, depending on the conditions at the port entrance.

The meeting of the twain, Terra et Aqua, No. 40, August, International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC), The Netherlands. 1 Introduction Dredging is a construction process and a dredged area may be considered to be a structure. In this respect it may be a temporary structure, formed during the works and subsequently filled in, or a permanent structure such as a navigation channel or basin. As such, the design of the structure and the method of construction, or the ability to construct it, should be examined as carefully as that for a wharf, jetty or other similar maritime structure.
