A REVIEW OF STUDIES OF OCEAN PLATFORM MOTIONS

In this paper various aspects of studies on the motions of ocean platforms are reviewed, with emphasis on floating and semi-submerged structures. Model experimental procedures and theoretical methods, commonly used for prediction purposes, are discussed and motion correlations are made with full scale observations. Special attention is given to the motions of platforms in the horizontal plane, where low frequency phenomena are of importance because of their being responsible for the major part of the loads in a mooring system.
