Abstract


Knowledge of ship behaviour at berth is of fundamental importance for the design of harbours and marine terminals. To develop more precise data on acceptable ship movements than available in the literature, a joint research project was undertaken in cooperation between governmental and research institutions in the Nordic countries: Denmark, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The purpose of the project was to establish criteria for acceptable ship movements in harbours for working and for safe mooring conditions.
