Mooring Lines Properties

Scripts calculate properties of mooring chains, wires and ropes, given nominal diameter of link for chain or nominal diameter of the rope.

"moorchain.py" - calculates properties of mooring chain, Studless and Studlink.

"moorwire.py" - calculates properties of:

  • Nylon rope

  • Polyester rope

  • Polypropylene rope

  • Wire rope with fibre core

  • Wire rope with wire core

Results are written in "txt" - file in working directory.

In order to run scripts, one will need to add to "python-path" function file "inout.py", which may be downloaded here.

Note: Although full attention had been given to accuracy of the scripts, and they never failed on me, use results as preliminary and wherever it is possible use original maker's data.
