Mooring analysis

DSA has extensive project experience in the analysis and design of moorings and cabled systems for the marine, offshore and subsea industries. Using ProteusDS and ShipMo3D, DSA performs time-domain analysis of mooring arrangements taking into account current, wave and wind loading.

The ProteusDS mooring analysis software package contains a variety of advanced features and models enabling analysis of very complex mooring systems. DSA has experience applying methods set out in API, DNV and ISO standards, and has built ProteusDS according to the requirements of these standards.

DSA provides numerical modelling services related to cabled or moored systems to marine engineering and naval architecture firms. By relying on DSA’s mooring analysis expertise these firms are able to provide economical and reliable moorings to their clients while minimizing their project risk.
