The Mooring Analysis Program is a library to model static loads and geometry of cables. MAP++ is designed to hook into other simulation codes through its API and can be customized to do a few things:

  • Prototype a design
  • Find the force-displacement relation for a given footprint
  • Integrate into other dynamic simulation programs to produce a nonlinear restoring force time history

A quick–start guide is available here. We integrated MAP++ into other programs written in Python, C, C++, and Fortran. MAP++ follows the FAST Offshore Wind Turbine Framework [2] pattern.
