A floating dock is a type of pontoon for dry docking ships, possessing floodable buoyancy chambers. The Floating docks have more advantages than the other type of ship docking for maintenance. The purpose of the research study is to design and calculate of spud housing construction for floating dock. The spud housing is used to keep of floating dock in the safe condition. Mild steel material is used to construction of spud housing with yield point 235 x 106 N/m2. Design calculations were done by finite element analysis (FEA). The minimum stress is 1042.36 N/m2 and minimum deflection is 0.447 mm. The maximum stress is 0.142 x 109 N/m2 and maximum deflection is 4.019 mm. The maximum stress is not more than yield point of material.
