Mooring Analysis

Mooring Analysis and Design

Delmar Systems’ technical team provides the very latest in high-end integrated motion mooring analysis services. Our mooring model includes independent motion characteristics generation utilizing a 20-year proven diffraction method hydrodynamic module that ties directly into the frequency and time-domain mooring analysis modules. Delmar’s proprietary bolt-on programs provide the added capability of:

  • Full line geometry, component tensions, and mud-line loading conditions via DelCat™ bolt-on
  • Corresponding anchor trajectories, loading, catenary-soil effects, and capacities via DEAP™ and OMNI-Max™ tool bolt-ons
  • Accounting for anchor movement, non-linear synthetic rope stiffness, creep, permanent elongation effects in the mooring analysis

Delmar’s mooring analysis program is an integrated motion-mooring program that has been designed for multi-purpose multi-body hydrodynamic and mooring analyses of floating and/or fixed structures including:

  • Diffraction/radiation
  • Static and dynamic initial stability including the effects of mooring systems and other physical connections
  • Frequency domain dynamic analysis
  • Time domain with irregular waves including slow drift
  • Non-linear time domain with large amplitude regular or irregular waves
