A single-point mooring system is modeled as a bilinear-stiff system. Long-term statistics of the nonlinear mooring system are estimated by Monte Carlo computer simulation. In an effort to generate an extreme event in a short time period (as opposed to lengthy Monte Carlo simulations), an equivalent linear system is devised along with an excitation designed to elicit a large, linear response. This design wave and the resulting system excitation are used in simulations to generate both the design nonlinear and equivalent linear responses.
