Abstract:

The design, construction and installation of large oceanic cable structures is a complex, expensive undertaking. In order to reduce the engineering uncertainties in the design of these structures, this laboratory is engaged in a major program to develop techniques for the static and dynamic analysis of oceanic cable structures. An extensive series of experiments in both laboratory and prototype sizes has been conducted to provide data for comparison to calculate results from numerical models of cable structures. This report presents the results of an at-sea measurement of the dynamic response of a 2,500-ft long single point mooring during an anchor-last deployment. The experiment reported herein was a part of the Mooring Dynamics Experiment MDE.
