This is a good and useful supplementary material to those who want to get clear idea on the methods applied to the mooring force analysis. The document was developed by the United States Naval Academy. The publication opens with the intro describing the purpose and background, followed by the United States Coast Guard Incident Data and compilation of the real life findings from the numerous actual cases.
Nowadays, the maritime shipping industry experiences the traffic and blockage issues with the deep draft navigation; another challenge is the vessel berths located close to the transiting ships. That is why it is an important task to carry out the proper investigation of the occurrences of the ship mooring breakaways caused by the passing ships. There are three groups of methods used for the mooring force analysis, namely analytical methods, numerical methods, and physical methods.
In turn, the physical methods include experimental or model scale, full scale and forensic, or evidentiary methods. The document is prepared in the form of presentation and is recommended to the students of the shipping related specialties as well as to the other people with the interest in the subject.
