ANALYSIS OF DEEP SEA MOOR AND CABLE STRUCTURES

A computer-aided analysis procedure for static and dynamic behavior of deep sea moors is presented. A fully coupled system is employed in which the mooring lines are represented by finite elements and the ship and mooring buoys (if any) are modeled as six degree of freedom rigid bodies. The effects of wind, currents and wave-induced drift forces are treated in the frequency domain. Results of a number of numerical experiments are discussed. Some of the simplifying assumptions made in moored ship analyses are examined for validity.
