Title (EN) A SYSTEM FOR PROTECTION OF AN INSTALLATION ON THE FLOOR OF A BODY OF WATER
(FR) SYSTEME DE PROTECTION D"UNE INSTALLATION PLACEE AU FOND D"UNE MASSE D"EAU
Abstract:
(EN) A system for protection of an installation (1) on the floor of a body of water from damage due to erosion, dragging ships" anchors and fishing gear. A flexible mat (16) covering the installation (1) prevents underscouring of the installation. The edges of the mat resting on the floor are so thick and rigid that a dragging anchor (10) or fishing gear hooking the edge will be carried over the installation (1) by the roll (9) of mat formed by the anchor or fishing gear. Elasticity of the mat and/or its edge causes the mat to roll back to resume its original configuration after the passage of the anchor or fishing gear.
(FR) Systeme de protection d"une installation (1) placee au fond d"une masse d"eau contre l"erosion, les ancres des navires qui chassent et les attirails de peche. Un tapis flexible (16) recouvrant l"installation. Les bords du tapis reposant sur le fond sont si epais et rigides qu"une ancre (10) ou un attirail de peche derapant et accrochant le bord serait transporte par dessus l"installation (1) par le rouleau (9) forme par le tapis sous l"action de l"ancre ou de l"attirail de peche. L"elasticite du tapis et/ou ses bords causent le deroulement du tapis et font que ce dernier reprend sa configuration d"origine, apres le passage de l"ancre ou de l"attirail de peche.
