Hello PF members,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would like to ask you a question regarding offshore moorings for barges up to 100 meters. More specific, I have a wave moving with 4 m/s and 3 meters height.

The dimensions of the barge are:

Length= 100m

Breadth= 37m

Depth= 7m

Loaded draft= 5.5m

Deadweight= 15,650 ton

The barge is moored with a line and the line is anchored on the seabed.

My question is, how can I calculate the effect of the wave on the aft surface of the barge (subsequently, to the whole body)? And, how this whole 'power', effects the line (thus, tension) and following, the anchor on the seabed?

I know that my question is a bit weird but I hope that you got the point of what I am trying to find :D !!!

Thank you in advance,

Makis
