    Abstract This paper presents numerical analysis for the mooring system with nonlinear elastic mooring cables. The equation of motion for nonlinear elastic mooring cable is established by utilizing finite element method. A marine mooring system of floating rectangular box with nonlinear elastic cables is taken as an illustrative example. The dynamic analysis, static analysis, and uniformity analysis are carried out for the polyester mooring system and the results are compared with those of the steel wire and the chain mooring system. Results from the present study can provide valuable recommendations for the design and construction of the mooring system with nonlinear… More >
