Abstract
This report describes development of a new software library for modelling ship mechanical systems. The library can model cables, winches, cables, and payloads. The library is also able to model collections of these components working together. When developing the library, computational fidelity was of primary importance and computational speed was of secondary importance. This initial version of the software library includes modelling of collisions and associated contact forces. The library is intended for modelling of naval platform systems, such as launch and recovery of a small craft from a ship.
