The report describes Program CABMOD, which is an updated version of Program CABUOY, which analyzes in the time domain the two-dimensional dynamic behavior of buoy-cable-body systems. The new revisions, all of which are related to the surface buoy, are described. Input instructions include a listing of the READ statements, definitions of the input variables, and a number of comments on the entering of input data. Results are presented for seven different ways of exercising Program CABMOD for a spheroidal buoy of aspect ratio 10 moored in a typical ocean environment. Author
