DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF THE NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL OCEAN INSTRUMENT PLATFORM

The dynamic and static response of the proposed NPS Ocean instrument platform is investigated by developing and solving linear differential equations of motion of the tower in surge, heave, and pitch. The motion is expressed as a response spectrum which is directly proportional to a wave spectrum as the exciting force. The analysis made for various configurations of the lateral restraining cables using both a five point and nine point mooring system. (Author)
