Bulk tank Lashing Padeyes

Project Description

Goal: Design and analyze lashing padeyes of a tall bulk tank on board of a sea going vessel.

Result: Reaction forces on the lashing eyes were determined by means of a Femap model. These reaction forces were used in a detailed FEM analysis of the lashing eyes to show that stresses and deformations in both the pad eye and the tank remain at acceptable levels even in the severest storm conditions.
