Often the anchor is deployed as the final action in the mooring of buoys in the water. It has not been economical to calculate the transient conditions in the mooring line until a predictor-corrector technique was developed, which calculates the positions of the anchor and mooring line, the accompanying velocities, and the tensions throughout the line, all as a function of time. This study is based on a numerical lumped mass model representation of a single continuous nylon line 5,000 ft (1,525 m) long.
