The spread sheet incorporates Vessel motion loading with Environmental Criteria in estimating stresses for mast designs. It covers both unstayed and stayed mast in SI unit and Imperia unit. Although it is being specifically doctored for mast, it could be adapted for estimating stresses of similar structures on floating unit such include Burner boom, Derricks etc. The calculation is referenced to Design of Ships masts R.W. Milliman published by the Association of Engineering and Shipbuilding Draughtsman AESA.
