Single Point Mooring Analysis

Single Point Moorings
STA specializes in the dynamic analysis of single point moorings. CALM buoys, mooring chains and underbuoy, or submarine, hoses are modelled in the time domain with OrcaFlex. Moored tankers are also modelled in the time domain with OrcaFlex with diffraction and added mass properties calculated with MDL Hydro, AQWA, WAMIT, Moses, and other frequency domain packages.
Displacement RAOs for the tankers can be quickly computed with STA BARMOT where load RAOs are not required (as is frequently the case). Preliminary static equilibrium can be quickly investigated with STA SPM.
