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!

    Works really fine, easy to apply.

    It would be nice to be able to extract results for further manipulation. Also, having X-Y and Z components of tension would be a nice column to have. I reverse engineered the extraction of those, but the locking mechanisms in the sheet make for a very wonky output.

    would also be nice to have a graphic of T and Fy at each bit

      Hi Jeff, thanks for the suggestions. We look to implement them in the next version
