Abstract
    This contribution reflects upon the issue of mooring line forces and ship behaviour during filling/emptying of inland and maritime navigation locks. The philosophy behind the so-called hawser force criterion and the classical approach to deal with it in design studies, is described first. Secondly, some innovations in the definition, verification and validation of the design criteria are highlighted.
