Abstract
The mean forces induced by waves, wind and current on tankers, barges and other structures, are very important for the selection of an appropriate passive or active positioning system. In the present paper tools are given for the determination of these forces, especially for tanker shaped bodies, taking into account the main influence of water depth. The way in which the estimation of the mean forces has to be used for a preliminary design of a mooring system will be dealt with.
