TIME DOMAIN SIMULATION OF SEMISUBMERSIBLE PLATFORM MOTION WITH APPLICATION TO THE TENSION-LEG PLATFORM

A numerical time-domain solution of the equations of motion for a floating semisubmersible stable platform offers the possibility of more accurate estimates of vessel motion response in severe sea conditions than are possible by the linear frequency domain technique. Some example calculations are described in which the technique is applied to the analysis of motions and anchoring forces for a tension-leg stable platform.
