Abstract
    The hydrodynamic surge and sway forces and yaw moment on a moored ship induced by a anothership moving near and parallel to it are estimated. The results are compared with the values obtained byexperiments carried out in the Towing tank for manoeuvres in shallow water (co-operation Flanders Hydraulics -Ghent University) in Antwerp. Subsequently, equations of motion of the moored ship are solved to determine theloads on the mooring ropes. The effect of underwater form of the ships on the forces is also discussed.
