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)
