Analysis of the positive forces exhibiting on the mooring line of composite-type sea cage

Wei He, Chunliu Li

Abstract


According to the commonly used arrangements of gravity sea cages in deep sea farming, 5 composite type working models are designed with modelbased testing by which the forces acting on the mooring line are measured under pure current, pure wave and the combination of both. Meanwhile, the forces acting on the normal mooring line are also analyzed. Based on the test data, a conclusion is made about the characteristics of the mooring line force. In the end, some feasible suggestions are given, which should be adopted for arrangement of sea cages in real farming.

Keywords
