Categories: ,


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

Very useful for marine transport operations

  • Stress check as per AISC ASD
  • Calculates Shear, Bending, Tensile and Von-Mises stresses
  • Easy to use and well laid-out
  • Available in both SI and English Units

Additional information



Q. Where do I get the cargo forces inputs from?

A. Cargo forces requires a motions analysis to be performed. For smaller cargoes, you can use our application ‘Cargo Forces & Accelerations’
