A TROUBLESHOOTING OF SUPERSTRUCTURE VIBRATION FOR VLCC

Due to the trend for the design of a light ship with automated control systems, smaller superstructures have been introduced resulting in a longer and more flexible bridge wing. This has increased vibration problems on the bridge wing and deckhouse, especially on very large crude carriers (VLCCs). This paper focuses on vibration phenomena of bridge wings on VLCCs. A brief history of existing troubleshooting tasks is given, including finite element analyses, exciter tests and sea trials.
