Rope Breaking Load for ES-TRIN 02 May 2020 15:29 #115702

Hello James,

Educated guesses not needed - they are defined in ES-TRIN - here - www.cesni.eu/en/documents/es-trin-2019/
and a simplified and focussed version here:
barges.org/knowledgebase/regulations/regulations-boats/triwv/more-about-triwv/348-es-trin-for-pleasurecraft

However I see I did not explain the abbreviations! L = hull length excluding rudder and bowsprit, B= maximum beam, T = draught from bottom of keel to maximum draught mark. I suggested in my note that 22mm (dia) polypropolene would be acceptable for most of our barges.

You don't need a barge to join - a dream of boating in Europe will do'. See www.barges.org

Hello all,

Hope you are all safe and healthy. As our Quaran-tainment is due to relax her in SW France in a few weeks I am starting my punch list for our ES-TRIN colonoscopy in October. Being that we are fairly new to this life I have a question regarding the calculation for the Break Load for the ropes required to pass said exam. The formula is as follows:

The cables shall have a breaking load Rs that is calculated using the following formulae;

for L x B X T up to 1000 m3: Rs =60 + (L x B x T) /10 (kN)

for L x B x T exceeding 1000 m3: Rs =150 + (L x B x T) /100 (kN)

Now when I was a young lad, the teacher would tell us what the values were meant to be for each letter. I assume L is length of our boat, B is for the beam width, and T is for?

Any highly educated guesses would be appreciated and correct responses will be Greatly appreciated.

Thank you all and stay safe.

Jim
