함정 묘의 파주력과 파주계수에 대한 이론적 고찰에 관한 연구
In this study, with the awareness of the limitations set in the currently operated calculations of holding power and the holding power coefficient of anchors of naval ships due to its simple application of a specific value, various factors that impact the holding power and its coefficient were verified based on existing data analysis of literature research and numerous experiment results from anchor manufacturers, research institutes and academic community in order to overcome the
... limitations. In addition, holding power and holding power coefficient were compared and analyzed by the shape of anchors. As a result, we came to know that the holding power of AC-14 type anchor is stronger than that of ASS type anchor or U. S. Navy Standard type anchor which makes it possible to reduce the weight of the anchor and therefore ease the process of naval shipbuilding. Furthermore, we confirmed the fact that U. S. Navy Standard type anchor does not react sensitively to the weight change of the anchor. Lastly, we found out that Danforth type anchor's holding power coefficient is in inverse proportion to the weight. Moreover, instructions for managing anchor are arranged easily for your information. The results of this study is expected to provide anchor -operating naval crew with a reliable theoretical basis pertaining to an anchor's holding power and its coefficient and contribute much for the safety of their act of anchoring.
