Effects of Different Influence Factors on Static and Dynamic Analysis of Mooring Line

Gang Ma, Liping Sun, Youwei Kang, and Lixin Xu
Abstract—Many analytic factors affect predicted results of mooring line’s static and dynamic responses associated with the platform motions. The paper presents a study of analytic factors that influence static and dynamic responses of a mooring line. These factors include mooring line characteristics, environmental conditions, and external excitations such as platform motions. In this paper, a finite element model for a mooring line system is built for a comparative study on computational efficiency and convergence of different initial values for static analysis. The paper also presents investigation of mooring line dynamic responses under different environmental conditions and external excitations, and discusses various influences of the above mentioned factors on the mooring line dynamic tension. Some conclusions are drawn, which can be the reference for mooring line design and analysis.

Index Terms—Mooring line, dynamic analysis, finite element model, slender rod theory.
