This operation is applicable to the installation steps of the fender D type rubber fender installed on the side shell of the ship:
1. Both ends of the rubber fender should have sealing plates and be slanted. The rubber fenders gradually transition to disappear naturally. The height to width ratio of the slashed end should be greater than 3:1, and the degree of design should be fixed. If there is a double plate, Then the size of the end of the double plate should be partially relaxed and strengthened.
2. The endpoint of the rubber fender should fall on the internal frame of the hull, such as the frame and the rubber fender floor.
3 The seams of the hull shell, the cladding of the fenders, and the butt joints of the rubber fenders themselves should be staggered at least 10cm from each other.
4. With the active development of the pre-installation project, the fenders are often pre-installed on the sections. Therefore, the fender should leave a 1-1.2m section outside the large seam of the section and be loose on the slipway. Once the tightness of the large seam in this section is accepted, the installation of this section of the fender can be carried out.
5. The transverse and longitudinal stiffeners in the fender are generally not welded to the hull plate, and a gap of -10mm should be left for the rubber fender.
