Abstract

This report covers a description of an experimental test campaign conducted at Aalborg University as part of the project “Mooring Solutions for Large Wave Energy Converters” . Furthermore, the test data is used to validate numerical tools to be used in initial design of mooring solutions for large floating WECs. The validation considers both a quasi-static using a self-develop script and a full dynamic approach using the commercial software package OrcaFlex. The report is the outcome of Work Package 4, Task 4.1 and 4.2 of the project. Thereby, the report forms the "Milestone 5: Report on validation/calibration of analysis tool" .
