    thenavalarch Junior Member launches the Mooring Forces Calculator - Port/Stbd on Quay

    This spreadsheet helps user to design a mooring pattern for a ship mooring by its side (Port or Stbd) to the Quay. The spreadsheet is based on the US Navy DDS-582-1 Calculations for Mooring Systems

    Calculates the Mooring Line Tensions
    Rigorously calculates the environmental forces of wind and current from the graphs provided in DDS-582-1
    Immensely useful in Mooring operations
    Reports the factor of safety for the resulting mooring forces
    It can be used to design for both normal or extreme weather condition

    A demo video is below:
