MOORING MECHANICS - A COMPREHENSIVE COMPUTER STUDY. VOLUME I. THREE DIMENSIONAL STATIC ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF SINGLE POINT TAUT AND SLACK MOORED BUOY SYSTEMS. PART I. SURFACE MOORING LINES. PART II. SUBSURFACE MOORING LINES

Part I of the report deals mainly with the static case of a single point surface mooring line, and presents a computer solution to provide, with reasonable accuracy, the system's steady-state configuration with regard to geometry and line tension. The computer program presented is written in FORTRAN. A complete listing and detailed instructions for its use are included. Part II deals mainly with the static case of a single point subsurface mooring line, and presents a computer solution to provide, with reasonable accuracy, the system's steady-state configuration with regard to geometry and line tension.
