Title (EN) CUBIC MARINE IMPACT-ABSORBING STRUCTURE
(FR) STRUCTURE MARINE CUBIQUE ABSORBANT LES CHOCS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A sacrificial impact-absorbing and energy-dissipating structure for protecting marine facilities from the destructive force of an accidental impact by a marine vessel is constructed from a plurality of inexpensive steel pipes or tubular members that are permanently secured together as by welding to form an open three-dimensional cubic framework of plastically deformable material. One or more of the tubular members forming the structure can optionally be filled with water, a rigid foam material and/or wooden elements that will provide additional energy-dissipation capabilities in the event that the containing tube is subjected to a deforming impact. Filler ports, discharge ports, pressure relief plugs, and valves can optionally be provided on one or more of the tubular members.
(FR)Structure sacrificielle absorbant les chocs et dissipant l'énergie, destinée à protéger des installations marines contre les forces destructrices d'un choc accidentel provoqué par un bâtiment marin, qui est construite à l'aide d'une pluralité de tuyaux d'acier ou d'éléments tubulaires peu onéreux fixés à demeure les uns aux autres, par exemple par soudage, pour former un châssis cubique en trois dimensions constitué de matière plastiquement déformable. Un ou plusieurs des éléments tubulaires formant la structure peuvent être éventuellement emplis d'eau, d'une matière sous forme de mousse rigide et / ou d'éléments en bois destinés à fournir des capacités supplémentaires de dissipation d'énergie au cas où le tube conteneur serait soumis à un choc déformant. Un ou plusieurs des éléments tubulaires peuvent éventuellement comporter des orifices de remplissage, des orifices d'évacuation, des bouchons d'évacuation de pression et des valves.
