ANALYSIS OF PEAK MOORING FORCES CAUSED BY SLOW VESSEL DRIFT OSCILLATIONS IN RANDOM SEAS

A procedure for calculation of peak mooring force caused by the long-period vessel drift oscillation is described. The long-period drift oscillation is induced by the action of groups of high waves in random seas. The procedure is developed from consideration of momentum flux change in ocean waves.
