Calculating Berthing Energy 2.c) C) Eccentricity- Ce Usually the ship is not parallel to the pier face during berthing. As a result, not all of the Kinetic Energy will be transmitted to the fenders. At impact, the ship will start to rotate around the contact point thus dissipating part of its energy. The following graph.. read more →

Calculating Berthing Energy 2.a-2.c 1. Kinetic Energy Equation The equation detailing the variables: EFender = 1/2 MV2 x Ce x Cm x Cs x Cc 2. Variables a) Mass-M One or more of the following weights should be readily available from the facility user: Displacement Tonnage – DT: this is the weight of the water.. read more →
