DYNAMIC RESPONSE OF THE LEG OF A TENSION LEG PLATFORM SUBJECTED TO AN AXIAL, SUDDENLY APPLIED LOAD AT ONE END

This paper deals with the solution of the problem of the dynamic response of the leg of a tension leg platform subjected to an axial, suddenly applied load at one end, considering a highly simplified model but taking into account several complicating factors. The problem is solved by means of a non-harmonic Fourier expansion in terms of eigenfunctions obtained from a non-regular Sturm-Liouville system.
