The user manual describes the Buoy-Cable Dynamics Program and its uses to determine the position and motions of a buoy-cable system under the affects of surface waves, current, and wind, which are all considered coplanar. This program has been developed for fast parametric studies. The wave input may either be specified as a table of wave frequencies or wavelengths with the wave amplitude of one foot or may be specified as one of three selectable sea spectra (Neumann, Pierson-Moskowitz or Two Parameter spectrum). This work discusses the capabilities of the program, options of input data deck, sub-routines, list of variables, error messages, a sample run, and program listings, with the intent of providing information necessary for quick and easy understanding of the program, promoting easy implementation and operation.(Author)
