Table 3-9. Quasi-Static Design Notes
Determine for the selected return interval, R. For
typical ships use the wind that has a duration of
30 seconds at an elevation of 10 m.
Assume the wind can come from any direction
except in cases where wind data show extreme
winds occur in a window of directions.
Use conditions for the site (speed and direction).
Use the range for the site.
Neglected. If waves are believed to be
important, then dynamic analyses are
Factors of safety
Perform the design using quasi-static forces and
moments (see Chapter 4), minimum factors of
safety in Table 3-7, and design to assure that all
criteria are met.
