MOTION AND LOAD PREDICTION OF FLOATING PIPELAYING EQUIPMENT

In predicting the motions and loads of floating pipelaying equipment-varying from conventional barges to large, highly sophisticated semisubmersibles-several mathematical methods and model experimental techniques are available. This paper reviews the various mathematical methods and correlates the results with model test and prototype data.
