Abstract : STATMOOR is a static mooring analysis program written in BASIC language and is one program in a hierarchy of programs developed at the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory for mooring analysis. STATMOOR analyzes the static response of a single-point moored vessel and hawser. The MENU arrangement of the program lends itself to a user-oriented conversational mode. The user has the option to enter, review, edit input, and obtain calculated results in printed tabular, video tabular, or video graphics form. Steady current, wind, and wave loads are considered. Wind load estimates are considered to be as accurate as the user's knowledge of the wind environment; current and wave loads are in a preliminary form and merit further refinement. STATMOOR was written to demonstrate the utility and ease of use of conversational mode programs and the potential for computer programs to replace bound design manuals. It s unique in that it incorporates recently developed wind load information, can confidently be used with little or no training, and is easily adaptable to most desk top computers. (Author)
