..., the mooring systems have frequently been damaged by storm waves. A main cause of the damage is the breakage of the mooring chain of the system due to impulsive tension which is produced by large buoy motion. Therefore, the reduction of the impulsive tension is significant to protect the breakage...

... and the large impulsive tension acting on the chain. The authors have suggested to employ the "Elastic Chain", which has the property of elasticity. The elastic chain is manufactured by burying steel chain links within rubber column. The elastic chain for mooring can be expected to reduce the abrasion between...

... ABSTRACT This paper focuses on the impulsive forces observed in the tension cables of a slack-anchored floating silt curtain in waves. The characteristics of the impulsive tension are described through the results of model tests. Numerical methods for the prediction of the impulsive tension...
