In the present paper the hydrodynamic loads working on buoys which are used as single point mooring terminals, are dealt with. A proper insight in these loads is a necessary basis for estimating the motions of a buoy system installed in waves. Such an estimate can be very helpful both for optimization purposes in the design stage of a new system or to explain observed phenomena of existing systems.
