  • To design reasonable main dimensions of catenary anchor leg mooring (CALM) buoys, 5 main design requirements were summarized. Based on practical engineering experiences, the mother model estimation method was established against the buoy weight. The reserve buoyancy was discussed, and the equal freeboard scheme set was proposed. The free floating stability of buoys was discussed based on the statics principle. Dynamic responses of buoys were discussed base on hydrodynamics, with the heave and roll characteristic vs. CALM buoy diameters presented. With the upper and lower limits on buoy diameters under 25 m and 100 m water depths as the boundary, a feasible region was built up. Its accuracy was verified in the actual engineer case under the 3 environmental conditions and by reference to the theoretical CALM buoy diameter feasible region under the 45 m water depth. The results show that, different factors, such as the environmental conditions, the mooring chain weight and others can influence the feasible region of buoy diameters, even under the same water depth. A deviation margin of the feasible region should be further considered in practical application. The study of the feasible region has a positive guiding significance to the determination of the main dimensions of CALM buoys.
