Abstract: Aiming at solving the selection of Panama Canal chock for emergency towing used on bulk carrier,the loadings and structural strength of the chocks in different towing patterns are analyzed by using the finite elements method. The towing line angles,acting positions,size of the chocks,thickness of the chock plates and the number of supporting brackets are considered as variable parameters in the strength analysis,and the towing limitation requirements are also taken into account. Some reasonable suggestions for selection of the chock are brought up based on the stress analysis.
