Experimental Investigation on the Embedding Motion and Holding Power of Anchor According to Initial Position Lee, Sang-Min; Lee, Jin-A;
The vessel should prevent dragging anchor against the external forces by utilizing the anchor and secure the stability of it. A fundamental understanding on the embedding motion and holding power of the anchor is necessary to perform the safe operating of anchor work. In this study, the embedding motion and holding power of the anchor according to an initial position in an experimental tank of 6m long in sand are tested by using two types of different anchor models(ASS and AC-14), which are generally applied to the commercial vessel nowadays. The anchor flukes seem to rotate and to be embedded into soil up to the maximum depth and maintaining a constant depth in case of the same direction and perpendicular to the towing direction, regardless of the form of an anchor. In case of the opposite direction to the towing direction, it is noted that the coefficient of holding power becomes smaller than the other initial positions.
