FOREWORD
0.1 This Indian Standard ( Part III ) ( First Revision) was~adopted by the Indian Standards Institution on 15 March 1974, after the draft finalized by the Ports and Harbours Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council. 0.2 A great need has ~been felt for formulating standard recommendations relating to various aspects of waterfront structures. This standard is one of a series of Indian Standards proposed to be formulated on this subject., IS: 465 1 ( Part I )1974* relates to site investigation. This part ( Part III ) deals with loading. This standard was published in 1969. In first revision, besides other changes, details on ships characteristics and the methods for determining wave forces have been added. 0.3 In the formulation of this standard due weightage has been given to international coordination among the standards and practices prevailing in different countries in addition to relating it to the practices in the field in this country. e 0.4 For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, expressing the result of a test, shall be rounded off in accordance with IS : 2;1960t. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard. 1. SCOPE 1.1 This standard ( Part III ) deals with the loading on waterfront structures. It covers vertical live loads, horizontal forces due to berthing, bollard pulls, wave forces, currents and winds; reference is given to earthquake forces. *Code of practice for planning and design of investigation (&St revision). tRuies for rounding oiT numerical values ( mired).

OF SHIP
TONNAGES
2.1 Gross
Registered Tonnage  Usually designated as GRT, is broadly the capacity in cubic feet of the spaces within the hull, and of the enclosed spaces above the deck available for cargo, stores, passengers and crew, with certain exceptions, divided by 100.
Thus 100 cubic feet of capacity is equivalent to 1 gross ton. Tonnage  Usually designated as NRT, is derived from the gross tonnage by deducting spaces used for the accommodation of the master, officers, crew, navigation, propelling machinery and fuel.
2.2 Net Registered
2.3 Dead Weight Tonnage  Usually designated as DWT, is the weight in tons ( of 2 240 lb ) of cargo, stores, fuel, passengers and crew carried by the ship when loaded to her maximum summer load line. 2.4 Displacement Tonnage  Is the actual weight of the vessel, or the weight of water she displaces when afloat and may be either ’ loaded ’ or ‘light ‘. Displacement, loaded, is the weight, in long tons, of the ship and its contents when fully loaded with cargo, to the plimsoll mark or load line. Displacement, light, is the weight, in long tons, of the ship without cargo, fuel and stores. 3. 3HI.P

5.1.6 Special Loads  Special loads like pipeline loads or conveyor loads or exceptional loads, such as surcharge due to ore stacks, transfer towers, heavy machinery or any other type of heavy lifts should be individually considered. 5.1.7 When the live loads act on the fill behind the structure, such as in a sheet pile wharf so that the loads are transmitted to the structure through increased earth pressure the retaining structure may be designed for uniformally distributed equivalent surcharge of half the value given in co1 3 of Table 1. In cases where higher load intensity is expected the actual value of surcharge may be taken.
5.1.8 If truck cranes are to be used in cargo handling, or if the backfill in a retaining structure is proposed to be placed with earth moving equipment of the crawler type, the uppermost portion of the waterfront structures, including the upper anchorage system should be designed according to the following loadings, whichever of the two is more unfavourable: a) Live load of 6.0 tonnes per square metre coping inboard for a 1.50m width.

Berthing Load
5.2.1 Berthing EnergyWhen an approaching vessel strikes a berth a horizontal force acts on the berth. The magnitude of this force depends on the kinetic energy that can be absorbed by the fendering system. The reaction force for which the berth is to be designed can be obtained and deflectionreaction diagrams of the fendering system chosen. These diagrams are obtainable from fender manufacturers. The kinetic energy, E, imparted to a fendering system, by a vessel moving with velocity V m/s is &en by:

NOTE Some authorities believe that it is difficult to establish consistent mathematical relationship between approach velocity of a vessel and the energy of impact because of many unknown and uncontrollable factors. A statistical approach based on recorded measurement of approach velocities and berthing energy at some British Petroleum Company tanker terminals provides a sound basis for design criteria than mathematical calculations based on velocity. According to Dent and Saurin* the foliowring criteria for berthing energy should be considered adequate: a) For offshore terminals with average exposure condition

5.2.1.1 Approach velocities  Normal components of approach velocities of berthing vessels are recommended to be taken as given in Table 2. Berthing conditions will depend on alignment of the berth currents, availability of tugs, physical layout of the harbour, waves at time of berthing.

Mass coefficient  When a vessel approaches a berth and is suddenly checked, the force of impact which the vessel imparts comprises of the weight of the vessel and an effect from the water moving along with the moviyg vessel.

5.2.13 Eccentricity coejh’ent  A vessel generally approaches a berth at an angle, denoted by 0 and touches it at a point either near the bow or stern of the vessel. In such eccentric cases the vessel is imparted a rotational force at the moment of contact, and the kinetic energy of the vessel is partially expended in its rotational motion. _ a) The eccentricity coefficient ( C, ) may then be derived as follows: c
~ = 1 + ( 1/f )” Sin* 0 1 + ( l/r )”
where 1 = distance from the centre of gravity of the vessel to the point of contact projected along the water line of the berth in m, and r = radius of gyration of rotational radius on the plane of the vessel from its centre of gravity in m ( PCG in Fig. 1 ). Table 3 gives eccentricity coefficient values of l/r.

5.2.1.4 Softness coeficient  This softness coefficient ( C, ) indicates the relation between the rigidity of the vessel and ,that of the fender, and hence also that between the energy absorbed by the vessel and bv the Since the ship is relatively rigid compared with the usually yieldfender. ing fendering systems, a value of 0.9 is generally applied for this factor, or 0.95 if higher safety margin is thought desirable.

However, short lengths of gravity type, sheet pile type or relieving platform type berths may have to be checked for impact of vessels. 5.3
Mooring
Loads
5.3.1 The mooring loads are the lateral loads caused by the mooring lines when they pull the ship into or along the dock or hold it against the forces of wind or current. 5.3.2
The maximum mooring loads are due to the wind forces on exposed side of the ship in light condition:

It is approximately equal to w us/Z g per square metre of area, where v is the velocity in m/s and w is the unit weight of water in tonnes/m3. The ship is generally berthed parallel to the current. With strong currents and where berth alignment materially deviates from the direction of the current, the likely force should be calculated by any recognized method and taken into account. 5.7
Wave
Forces
5.7.1 As far as analysis and computation of forces exerted by waves on structures are concerned, there are three distinct types of waves, namely: a) Nonbreaking
waves,
b) Breaking waves, and c) Broken waves. 5.7.2
_Nonbreaking Waves
5.7.2.1 Generally, when the depth of water against the structure is greater than about 13 times the maximum expected wave height nonbreaking wave conditions occur. Forces due to nonbreaking waves are essentially hydrostatic. hlethod ’ may be used for the determination of pressure due to nonbreakingwaves. The method of computation using Sainflou Method is outlined in Appendix B. 5.7.2.2

waves cause both static and dynamic
pressures.
5.7.3.2 Determination of the design wave for breaking wave conditions may be based on depth of water about seven breaker heights Hb, seaward of the structure, instead of the water depth at which the structure is located. 5.7.3.3 The actual pressures caused by a breaking wave is obtained by following the method suggested by Minikin. The method of computation using Minikin’s Method is outlined in Appendix C. 5.7.4
Broken Waues
5.7.4.1 Locations of certain structures like protective structure will be such that waves will break before striking them. In such cases, no exact formulae have been developed so far to evaluate the forces due to broken waves, but only approximate methods based on certain simplifying assumptions are available and these are given in Appendix D. *Criteria for earthquake resistant design of structures.

For piles with flat or irregular surfaces, such as concrete and H pipes, very little is known of the effect of shape on drag and inertial forces. 5.7.5.3 Tests have indicated that the wave forces are smallest for a cylindrical section, increasing about 25 percent for a flat plate of the same projected width, between 42 and 158 percent for H sections perpendicular to the wave and between 122 and 258 percent when oriented at 45”.

B2.2 If there is wave action on the landward side also, then the condition
of crest of clapotis on the seaside and trough of the wave on the harbour side will produce maximum pressure from the seaside. The maximum pressure from the harbour side will be produced when the trough of the clapotis on the seaside and the crest of wave on the landside are at the structure. B2:3 Wall of Low Meight If the height of the wall is less than the predicted wave ~height eat the wall, forces may be approximated by drawing the force polygon as if the wall were higher than the impinging waves then analyzing only that portion below the wall crest. Forces due to a wave crest at the wall are computed from the area AFBSC, as shown in Fig. 5. 20
