    Ports and terminals open to prevailing winds can cause problems to moored ships with a high free-board. Such ships, i.e. ship and berth mooring systems, have to deal with significant aerodynamic loads. This paper addresses the theoretical approach of the influence of aerodynamic loads on a mooring system for ship and investigates whether windscreens can reduce aerodynamic loads on ships in ports.
