Abstract

In this study the dynamic behavior for a bridge type wharf system incorporated with typical HP or;r type rubber fender system is studied when subjected to berthing impact of large cargo ships. Firstly, the type and size of the fender and the material behavior are taken into examination and comparisons are made between the modeling results and the experimental data. Through a simplified material model for the selected type offender, the behavior of the material can be predicted during the analysis of the structural movement. The traditional analytical method of energy absorption from the fender to estimate the defection and the reactive force to the wharf structure is modified by applying the momentum effect of the ship berthing. Then the dynamic effect can be evaluated through the duration in additi
