O’Donnell Consulting performed failure analyses of a barge mooring that had broken during a flood condition on the Monongehela River in Pittsburgh, PA. Engineering and finite element analyses showed that the bow and stern mooring lines were subjected to excessive loads as the river water levels increased, causing failure of the u-bolts and other structural elements of the mooring.
