Abstract

Highlights
•A finite difference model is proposed for coupled analysis of floating offshore wind turbines.
•Parallel computation is implemented for solving dynamics of multiple cables in a mooring system.
•The developed mooring dynamics code is verified with a lumped mass model.
•The coupled model is used for analysis of a spar-type floating offshore wind turbine.
