TheNavalArch: Mooring Line Catenary App

Postby thenavalarch » Wed Jan 24, 2018 3:28 pm ... enary-app/

TheNavalArch launches Mooring Line Catenary App - an app which helps the user calculate the catenary of a mooring line for static case..

This tool calculates the catenary profile and the tension in a multi-segmented line. It can simulate a free hanging catenary line or a line anchored on the ground.

Useful in Marine mooring operations to determine the catenary of the mooring line.
Can be used for mooring lines comprised of upto four segments
Free hanging catenary too can be simulated. To simulate free hanging catenary, uncheck the Ground Active checkbox under Options in the Input Sheet. In this case length of line on ground is set to zero.
***Please note that the catenary is calculated for static case, without taking environment into account

***Solver add-in is required in Excel to run this app.
