Keystone provided civil/structural engineering and design services for the Dock Optimoor Analysis and Structural Assessment Project. Keystone’s scope of work included gathering drawings and information on existing structures and fenders, preliminary design basis and ship arrangement plans, and developing Optimoor models for the dock and run cases.
The project included three upriver/downriver breasting dolphins, a loading platform, and upriver/downriver mooring dolphins. The SACS models involved modeling dolphins using EDI SACS Marine Structural Analysis Program as well as modeling soil and piling. Additionally, the project scope included dynamics runs to develop dolphin spring, in place sizing to check dolphins with modified system spring, and check joints for API punching shear.
