Study on Preventing
Anchor Drag due to Typhoon
(Commissioned by the Kobe Marine Casualty Prevention Institute)
We conducted a study on prevention of anchor drag in Osaka Bay commissioned by the Kobe Marine Casualty Prevention Institute in response to the damage caused by Typhoon No. 21 that hit the Kinki region in September 2018. MOL Marine & Engineering conducted a simulation study to verify the impact of changes of the depth of water caused by storm surge on the agitation of anchored vessels.
What is Anchoring Simulation?
This simulation is to understand the temporal agitation of vessels and the temporal changes in tension on the anchor chain due to external forces including the wind and water current. It enables the evaluation of the movement of the hull and the possibility of bottoming out and anchor drag.
Customized Vessel Models
A vessel model can be generated based on vessel drawings to recreate exterior views of the vessel, propulsion system, and kinetic characteristics. Simulations using the model prepared this way allow for recreating behaviors specific to the target vessel with high precision, which leads to an accurate evaluation.
Marine Consulting Case Studies
We will be evaluating navigability and navigation limit conditions for VLCC entering and exiting the harbor through narrow channels.
As part of a study on prevention of maritime accidents at anchor, we have evaluated the impact of high tide on vessel slewing at anchor.
We have examined maneuvering and mooring for accepting large ocean cruise ships.
