Design of Fenders for Container Vessels

Fender Spacing and Layout:

Fendering system should be designed to spread the berth loads evenly along as much of the vessel side as is possible. Many vessels have considerable amounts of topside flare forward and aft, below main deck level. In the bow the amount of curvature in the main deck, in plan view, will also vary. As a result the parallel or flat areas of the side of a vessel may be reduced by as much as one third, or more, of its overall length.

Tidal range and the shape of the vessel will dictate the vertical dimension of the fendering catching on low freeboard vessels at low states of the tide. The upper edge of the fendering will need to be configured so as to prevent or accommodate contact being made with vessels with considerable amounts of flare.

Certain lengths of wharf edge may be required, additionally to permit use of quarter or vessel side ramps. It may be necessary to make provision to enable certain sections of fendering to be removed or substituted for different types of vessels or means of cargo handling at container quays, even though the declared traffic is initially containers.
