OPTIMOOR is an easy-to-use mooring analysis computer program for use by vessel and terminal personnel as well as by port designers and naval architects.
It can be used to manage the mooring while at the berth. It can be used to train personnel in how to tend ship moorings and to react to situations.
The need for and effectiveness of auxiliary mooring lines can be judged. Wind or current limitations can otherwise be imposed. Tide tables can be input in advance and then used to anticipate line tending requirements. Time will then be saved in deploying lines to the proper mooring points. It can help determine if vessels can be safely moored at various terminals, and if special limitations are necessary. Advantages and problems of various mooring arrangements can be demonstrated.
The time-forward feature with tide, draft and trim changes will illustrate how to anticipate line tending and what is the best tending action. Hand calculation of the various applied and resulting forces, using methods described in several OCIMF documents, is difficult and time consuming. When the shipboard fitting is not selected from an accepted industry standard, the design load used to assess its strength and its attachment to the ship should be in accordance with 3.
Acting point of towing force 3.
Allowable stresses 3. For fittings used for both harbour and escort purposes, the greater of the design loads of 3.
The design load should be applied through the mooring line according to the arrangement shown on the towing and mooring arrangements plan. When the shipboard fitting is not selected from an accepted industry standard, the fittings should be equivalent to a recognized industry standard in compliance with the design load as per 4.
