A method for simulating the motions and mooring forces of a moored ship subject to wave forcing has been further developed and validated for both the open water case and inside harbour areas. The method was originally developed and reported in Bingham (2000). The simulation tool is named WAMSIM and it solves the equations of motions in the time domain. The package applies the WAMITW® model to provide the frequency domain hydrodynamic characteristics (the frequency response functions or FRFs) of the body. Examples from both open waters and enclosed waters in harbours are presented.
