DYNAMIC RESPONSE CHARACTERISTICS OF TAUT MOORED PLATFORMS

In this paper, the whole dynamic response characteristics of taut moored platforms subjected to regular waves are concluded by both experimental and theoretical investigations. Up to this time, a series of tests on the models of vertically taut moored single buoy and vertically or splayed taut moored platforms subjected to regular waves have been conducted in a wide range of wave frequency and wave height, and their results are discussed as a whole with both linear analysis in frequency domain and non-linear analyses based on numerical time integration method and approximate theory according to peculiarity of each non-linearity. Particularly, the results on super-harmonic resonance, sub-harmonic resonance and critical wave height for slacking are discussed both qualitatively and quantitatively. Finally, a basic recommendation is given for actual initial planning for designing taut moored platforms. (Author)
