    Hi launches the Dog Plate (a.k.a. Clip) design spreadsheet.

    Dog plates a.k.a. clips are seafastening items which are used to restrain the cargo from tipping during transport. This spreadsheet can be used to design such a dog plate.

    It takes as input the properties of the Cargo, the forces on the cargo and the properties of the Dog plate and performs the strength check in Longitudinal and transverse directions

    A youtube demo video is here:

    • Very useful for marine transport operations
    • Stress check as per AISC ASD 2010
    • Calculates Shear, Bending, Tensile and Von-Mises stresses
    • Easy to use and well laid-out
