This 2019 PIANC/RINA Conference is targeted at progressing the work done at the 8 October 2018 workshop, where four main topics were examined in detail:-
This in turn had already built on the results of the 14 May 2018 joint PIANC/RINA Seminar which highlighted a number of areas where there was a clear need to harmonise approaches between naval architects and port engineers, event to the point of needing a better common vocabulary for certain issues.
Having highlighted the problems, it is now necessary to identify the impact of these issues on standards and codes of practice, and these presentations, given by speakers with direct experience of these key issues.
For the ship/fender interaction issue, the curious situation where regular damage to ships can be shown to be almost inevitable and yet is seldom reported is noted with examples indicating the expected effect on ship hulls.
For fenders and bollard quality, given a background of recent examples of unreliability in performance, the speakers will explain how this has been overcome.
For moorings, the issue of how to assess the required strength of mooring points is approached from four directions.
In a guided interactive breakout session, a workshop will give delegates a chance to take part in a “hands-on” exercise experience, allowing them to give feedback on the value of the information in the present standards and to suggest specific improvements. Thus delegates will have a direct influence on future upgrades to the standard suite. .
It is recommended to any civil, port or coastal engineers involved in the design and planning of maritime facilities.
