Dynamic Analysis of Moored Vessels

Using MIKE 21 Mooring Analysis (MA)

Learn the fundamentals of mooring analysis

This new online course teaches the fundamentals of mooring analysis by providing an introduction on how to set up a moored ship in a port subject to environmental forces such as waves, currents, and wind. 

Affordable and convenient high quality technical training!

Are you a professional in the field of port and maritime/marine engineering? Do you have a basic knowledge of ships, ports, and moorings and experience using numerical modelling software such as MIKE or similar?

Are you prepared to allocate a minimum of two hours of self-study each week as well as commit to five 2-hour online sessions?

If yes, you can benefit from this instructor-facilitated, online course. You’ll learn the background of mooring analysis such as vessel types and data, mooring equipment, and guidelines, perform dynamic mooring analysis with MIKE 21 MA through hands-on exercises where you will input data assessment and calculations, and evaluate your results by interpretation, demonstration, and visualization.

DHI has added extra course materials offering you the opportunity to invest an extra 1-2 hours of self-study per session to master the software.

MIKE 21 Mooring Analysis

A user-friendly interface

It is a breeze to simulate single moored vessels or multi-body interactions with the intuitive user interface.

Extremely fast simulations

The mooring analysis solver of our model allows for rapid run times while offering extremely accurate results.

High-precision hydrodynamic analysis

You can incorporate the shape of the vessel and wave and flow fields that surround the entire vessel. Users can also input time-series and metocean data.

A comprehensive vessel hulls catalogue

Comes with a vessel hulls catalogue that includes common ships, which users can choose to scale accordingly.

Supporting smart mooring systems

Allowing you to simulate automatic mooring systems such as Trelleborg's rope-free AutoMoor system.
