Temporary Works And Stability CalculationsSafer by design
Design & Calculations
Our pontoons have undergone extensive testing by both structural engineers and marine architects in order to ensure they are able to meet the demands placed upon them.
The pontoons and ancillaries have been extensively tested giving us information on buoyancy, crush, stability, shear and tensile strength.
In some instances, however we need to go above and beyond these standard calculations to ensure the proposed configuration and layout of the pontoons will be suitable.
Whether it’s ensuring the required loadings can be met, identifying the positioning of equipment and plant on the pontoon or the anchoring configuration, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
In such instances we commission structural engineers to take account all factors and produce a report with their findings and recommendations. We can then use this finding to provide temporay works designs and stability calculations.
