DYNAMICS OF SINGLE POINT OCEAN MOORINGS OF A BUOY-A NUMERICAL MODEL FOR SOLUTION BY COMPUTER
A numerical model was developed which predicts the dynamic response of a single mooring line and a buoy of forty feet diameter to sinusoidal waves, wind and current in all deep waters. All forces and reactions were considered to be in one plane. The buoy was considered to be a rigid body and accelerations were determined from Newtons second law of motion. Recurrence formulas determined displacements and velocities. ( Author )
