SEAWORTHINESS OF SEMI-SUBMERSIBLE OFFSHORE STRUCTURES IN WAVES

In order to study the seaworthiness of semi-submersible offshore structures in waves, various tank tests were performed <forced oscillation test, wave force test, motion test in waves> in both their operating and transit-condition. For theoretical calculations the Practical Calculation Method was found useful to estimate seaworthiness of semi-submersible offshore structures in waves.
