PREDICTION OF MOTIONS AND TENSION IN MOORING LINES ON SLACK- MOORED FLOATING OCEANIC ARCHITECTURAL BUILDING IN COASTAL ZONES

The paper is concerned with the prediction method for the motions and tensions of mooring lines on slack-moored floating oceanic architectural building in a coastal zone. The motions and the tensions of mooring lines were estimated by time domain numerical simulation. The method includes the nonlinearity of the mooring system, and slowly varying drift force. A time domain numerical simulation was performed for motions and tensions of mooring lines on a floating barge in two component waves. The results obtained by numerical simulation were compared with the experimental results. The validity of the method was confirmed.
