Mooring Forces Calculator (Port or Stbd on Quay)


Report Abuse
Categories: ,


This spreadsheet helps user to design a mooring pattern for a ship mooring by its side (Port or Stbd) to the Quay. The spreadsheet is based on the US Navy DDS-582-1 Calculations for Mooring Systems

  • Calculates the Mooring Line Tensions
  • Rigorously calculates the environmental forces of wind and current from the graphs provided in DDS-582-1
  • Immensely useful in Mooring operations
  • Reports the factor of safety for the resulting mooring forces
  • It can be used to design for both normal or extreme weather condition
  • Only in SI Units!

Q. Can it be used for asymmetric mooring aft/fwd?

A. The mooring arrangement should be approximately symmetric aft and fwd. For mooring which is highly asymmetric, this app is not recommended.
