HYDRODYNAMIC ASPECTS OF FLOATING STABLE OCEAN PLATFORMS
This report details a Naval Undersea Center five-year study on the hydrodynamics of floating stable ocean platforms constructed from repetitively cast concrete modules. The effort centered on analytical prediction and measurement through model testing of the following design aspects for several platform configurations: (1) Platform heave, pitch, roll, yaw, surge and sway motion due to wave action; (2) horizontal drag forces in various sea states; (3) structural forces on modules due to wave action; and (4) underwater submersible docking in a module.
