WAVE LOAD EFFECTS IN TOWLINES ANALYSES AND MODEL TEST
The paper gives a description of an analytical model for time-domain simulation of towing systems subjected to stationary wind and wave loads, and transient loads due to starting and stopping. Results from experiments with, and analyses of a tug-towline model are described, with particular emphasis on low-frequency surge motions. The towline stiffness has a large effect on dynamic tension and surge motion. Low-frequency responses are more sensitive to the sea state than high-frequency responses. Order from NSFI as No. 19516.
