Motion of large diameter floating platforms in waves

Seppo Kalske, Tuomo Karppinen, Jerzy Matusiak

Research output: Book/ReportReport


Large floating offshore structures encounter wave induced motions and loads in real service conditions. An evaluation of these motions and loads is the purpose of this examination. Model test and numerical calculations are performed to determine the hydrodynamic characteristics of two floating offshore structures. Theoretical and experimental results are compared to check the validity of the computer program.
