|Abstract:||Physical models of moored floating structures are used extensively when looking at complex wave-structure interactions such as those involved in vessel downtime & mooring analyses. In order to correctly represent the motion of a vessel at berth, the highly nonlinear mooring line characteristics need to be correctly re-created at scale. A novel active mooring line transducer (AMLT) is described, which reproduces the non-linear characteristic of mooring lines, without the restrictions of linear springs.|
