Table 3-6. Ship Mooring Hardware Design Criteria
a. Ship Anchor Systems*
b. Ship Mooring Systems**
MOORING SERVICE TYPE MINIMUM WIND SPEED
*Quasi-static design assuming wind and current are co-linear for ship and submarine
anchor systems (after NAVSEASYSCOM DDS-581).
**To define the design water depth, use T/d=0.9 for flat keeled ships; for ships with non-
flat hulls, that have sonar domes or other projections, take the ship draft, T, as the mean
depth of the keel and determine the water depth, d, by adding 0.61 meter (2 feet) to the
maximum navigation draft of the ship (note, may vary depending on sonar dome size).
***Ships need to carry lines suitable for MST IIB.
