Mathematical Model of a Marine Hose-String at a Buoy: Part 1 — Static Problem
Single point mooring (SPM) installations enable very large oil tankers to be loaded or unloaded without the need of deep water facilities. The most common system is shown in Figure 13.1 and comprises of a floating buoy secured to the sea-bed by chains. The tanker’s hawser and the surface hose are connected to a turntable on top of the buoy in response to the prevailing wind, wave and current forces. The oil is transferred from the buoy to the sea-bed manifold by an underbuoy submarine hose and then to the onshore facilities by a steel pipeline.
