Abstract


Up to the present time, some researches have been done about hydrodynamic forces and tensile forces on mooring cables and configuration of cables in uniform and ununiform currents. Recently, the dynamic problems on the mooring system of buoy in waves are being studied by means of analytical and numerical methods. Authors have studied about a large navigation buoy exposed to strong tidal currents and large waves by means of model tests in an open channel and a wave tank.
