Recent research indicates that dynamic amplification of tension in lines and risers can be of the same order of magnitude as the so-called quasistatic values. Also, dynamic effects in the mooring system can affect low-frequency motions of the structure by increasing virtual stiffness and damping.
This paper presents three-dimensional (3D) computational procedures that describe the motion, tension, and bending moment along a flexible pipe or mooring line. The paper also discusses correlations with model test data.
