Laboratory data presented on forces induced by water gravity waves in camels and mooring lines of Liberty Ship, moored alongside dock, for waves up to 5 ft in height and with periods up to 120 sec; it was not possible to obtain simple natural periods of surge, sway, etc for this particular mooring arrangement as one motion induced another.
