Mooring Samples

BUOY:

This sample problem shows an analysis of a free-standing buoyant riser.

BUOY_DBA:

This test case is the same as BUOY, except it shows how to use the DATABASE command. The command saves the calculated data to a SQL database file.

CALM:

This sample problem shows a tanker moored with a "calm" being simulated in the frequency domain.

WINCH:

This sample shows how to use a winch in the time domain. A barge is attached to a long mooring line, and the length of the line is decreased according to a curve. A hydrodynamic database is not computed. Only drag, added mass and damping are included in the motions analysis.

ML_FAT:

This sample problem shows an analysis of a barge where the fatigue in the mooring system is computed.

MP_MOOR:

This sample shows the use of most of the options available for analysis of a moored barge. These files are further discussed as part of the workbook A Gentle Introduction to MOSES, and here.

SBS:

This is an example of the use of the side by side tanker macro system supplied in the tools directory.

TURRET:

This is an example of the use of the tanker analysis macro system supplied in the tools directory. Here, a turret moored tanker is analyzed.

INT_TURRET:

This is an example of the use of the turret moored tanker. The turret has been modeled as a buoy integral to the tanker body. The mooring lines are connected to the buoy and the buoy is connected to the tanker via rotational springs and stiff linear springs. Here, a turret moored tanker is analyzed.
