CATENARY OCEAN MOORING SYSTEMS - APPROACHES TO ANALYSIS AND TESTING

An overall design methodology for ocean catenary mooring systems is presented which highlights the need for a comprehensive design approach. Methods of dynamic mooring analysis are described and several specific areas are identified which require differing analysis approaches. The need for system testing as a design verification tool is outlined and difficulties with small scale model testing are illustrated.
