A general, computationally efficient approach for treating mooring line static and dynamic response problems is presented. The technique is a form of incremental linearization. An initial equilibrium configuration is obtained from explicit integration of the nonlinear equations including only the dominant loading. Other loadings are then considered as increments in the equations which are linearized for each load. The line solution or transfer matrix formulation is used to compute the small deformation due to each increment. Changes in mooring line properties and loads are accommodated.
