Abstract

Multi-component mooring line (MCML) system is widely used and expected to be escalated for deep water mooring operation since it has several advantages comparing with conventional mooring line. The modelling of MCML involving its dynamic effects is strongly required to predict the dynamic behaviours of the mooring line precisely. In this paper, a proposed three-dimensional dynamics model of MCML system is presented and implemented to single point multi-leg mooring line configuration operated in deep water condition. An extending three-dimensional lumped mass method is elaborated to develop the model while the combination of Manoeuvring Modelling Group (MMG) and conventional floating body motion equations is used to perform simultaneous motion between floating structure and mooring lines. The simultaneous motion is performed with respect to wind, wave, and current. The motion of the floating structure and mooring line as well as mooring line tension can be analysed properly by using the presented model. The simulation results of the model show reasonable results for both floating structure and mooring line.
