In the present study, different configurations of a mooring line under static case are analysed using CFD software SIMULIA XFLOW 2022X. The location of different points of the suspended chain in the resting catenary shape are compared to the Quasi-Static model implemented by Masciola et al. [1]. Additionally, fairlead tensions are compared to experimental data obtained by Azcona et al. [2] and to computational model using OPASS.
