DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF A SINGLE MOORED SEA DATA BUOY

Based on static analysis, the added mass and added damping of a buoy are calculated by a three dimensional potential flow numerical calculation program. The method proposed is used to solve the dynamic problem of a moored buoy. In this method, the dynamic equations of the mooring line were linearized while the interaction between buoy motions and cable motions was taken into consideration. Also, a method to handle a mooring line with concentrated mass along it is proposed. Calculated results are presented and compared with experimental results.
