Mooring Design & Custom Engineered Solutions
Mooring Systems, Inc. has extensive design experience in a wide variety of instrumentation deployment applications ranging from inshore moorings and pier mounted installations to deep ocean moorings and ocean bottom platforms.
Custom Mooring Design
Based on customer application details, environmental conditions, and instrumentation limitations, Mooring Systems will design a mooring to obtain the highest level of performance possible from each instrument.
Additionally, Mooring Systems, Inc. provides a reliable mooring design that will meet or exceed the required servicing duration.
Our designs provide:
- Component Selection Including Wire Rope, Synthetics, Chain, Flotation, and Hardware
- Acoustic Release Selection and Tandem Hardware
- Mooring Length and Strength Determination
- Floatation Amount, Type, and Location on Mooring
- Current Profile Analysis
- Tension Analysis
- Anchor Selection
- Instrument Inclination and Watch Circle Determination
Mooring Performance Prediction Software
SFMOOR and SSMOOR computer software programs, designed by Henri Berteaux, are used to predict mooring trajectory and loading for surface buoy moorings and sub-surface buoys.
These software tools are particularly helpful for applications with fast moving currents that could result in high mooring loads and strumming, and excessive excursion.
