DESIGN OF SINGLE-POINT MOORING SYSTEMS FOR THE OPEN OCEAN

Design of single-point mooring systems for the open ocean is facilitated by a procedure for analyzing mooring forces, using scaled model data and environmental observations to derive force-probability functions which define the probability of exceeding any given force in the mooring system. A specific study indicates that a conventional single-point mooring buoy could be used successfully to permanently moor a 52,000 dwt tanker in 260 ft of unsheltered water.
