You Need Mooring Dolphins to Make Your Ship Safe and Sound
Together with retaining walls and seawalls, mooring dolphins are the essential elements of harbour construction. Retaining walls are relatively rigid walls used for supporting the soil mass laterally so that the soil can be retained at different levels on the two sides. Well, a seawall is a form of coastal defense constructed where the sea, and associated coastal processes, impact directly upon the landforms of the coast. Mooring dolphins, main part of sea construction, include three designs , for each dolphin, these are:
Sixteen 36 inch diameter by 0.75 inch wall thickness steel pipe piles installed vertically open ended and filed with reinforced concrete to 10 feet above the bottom, supporting a 6 feet thick concrete pile cap with a top elevation of +9.5 feet.
Twenty – five ended eighteen inch diameter by 0.625 inch wall thickness steel pipe piles installed vertically and on a batter resisting the mooring loads in compression and tension plus possible rock anchors drilled below the bottom of the piles. The piles would support a 6 feet thick concrete cap with a top elevation of +9.5 feet.
Forty – six feet diameter steel sheet pile cells using web arch piles driven 5 feet into the bedrock and filled with dredged material and covered with a 4 feet thick concrete cap with a top elevation of +0.95 feet.
