The anchor chain can be divided into two types: Stud Chain and Stud less Chain according to the structure of its links. The stud anchor chain is equipped with rungs. When the size and material are the same, the strength of the stud anchor chain is larger than that of the stud less chain.

The Mechanics of an Anchor Chain

Understanding the mechanics of an anchor chain is key to appreciating its role in anchoring operations. When the anchor is dropped, the chain pays out, allowing the anchor to settle on the seabed. As the ship moves backward, the chain gradually extends, forming a catenary - a horizontal curve shaped by the weight and tension of the chain. The catenary acts as a shock absorber, distributing the forces exerted on the anchor and reducing strain on both the anchor and the vessel.

Anchor chain storage locker

Anchor chains are stored in a chain locker set deep within the hull of the vessel. These are ventilated enclosures that are used to store the anchor while it is not in use, and to house the remaining length of the anchor chain while it is deployed. It can be accessed by engineers and personnel for routine checks or long-term maintenance.

Generally, the floor of the chain locker is reinforced, so that it can bear the extra weight of the metal rode. To haul the chain out of the locker, a series of heavy-duty motors and gears are set up on the deck in pairs.

The Importance of a Reliable Anchor Chain

A ship's anchor chain plays a critical role in ensuring the vessel's stability and safety while at rest. A reliable anchor chain provides the necessary strength and support to withstand the forces exerted by wind, waves, and currents. It acts as a vital link between the ship and the anchor, transmitting the anchor's holding power to keep the vessel secure.

To ensure the anchor chain's reliability, it must be constructed from high-quality steel and designed to withstand the harsh marine environment. The chain's size and weight are determined based on the ship's size and requirements, with larger ships typically requiring thicker and heavier chains. Regular maintenance and inspections are crucial to identify any signs of wear, corrosion, or damage that could compromise the chain's integrity. By prioritizing the reliability of the anchor chain, ships can anchor with confidence and maintain their position even in challenging conditions.

The structural properties of the anchor chain

The anchor chain consists of many chain links, and the size is expressed in chain diameter (mm). According to whether there is a strut in the middle of the chain ring, it is divided into nailed anchor chain and nailless anchor chain. Anchor chains can be made by forging, casting and welding.

The marine anchor chain is composed of several "sections" (shackles), each section is 25.0-27.5 meters long, and the sections are connected by chain links or shackles. After the anchor is lifted, the chain is stored in the chain locker in the bow. The specifications of the anchor chain are determined according to the ship construction standard.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

The anchoring equipment of a ship comprises the anchor, anchor chain and the windlass. The anchoring equipment as required herewith is intended for temporary mooring of a ship within a harbour or sheltered area when the ship is awaiting berth, tide etc.

Determining how long your anchor rode should be is as simple as multiplying the deepest water you expect to anchor in by 8. As for rope size, the rule of thumb is 1/8" of rope diameter for every 9' of boat length.

Its primary purpose is to provide a mechanism for ships and boats to hold their position either during berthing and mooring operations at ports, or for large offshore installations such as semi-submersible oil rigs to remain stationary above an oil deposit.
