  1. Identify clearly how mooring systems are currently designed on the basis of limited current speed data, and how that might be improved with the addition of empirical load cell information
  2. Conduct sufficient field trials to provide adequate current speed, wave action and load cell data such that model(s) can be developed
  3. Prepare models

Deliver final report, together with any stand-alone models
