Methods of analysis of the statics and dynamics of floating anchored structures applied to design structures, intended for exploration of the offshore hydrocarbon fields, are examined in this article. Methods under consideration are used in the programme package "Anchored structures" whose structure and basic resources are described. In conclusion, some examples of calculations and designs of various types of offshore floating structures, designed by ‘Rubin’ design department, are presented.
