Paper Title:
Numerical Study on Hydrodynamic Behavior of Deepwater Spar Platform with Different Mooring Configurations
  Abstract

The motion performance of Spar platform and dynamic characteristics for the mooring lines under different mooring configurations have been studied both in static analysis and coupled dynamic analysis. First, 3D hydrodynamic finite element model is built and the effects of the mooring system are taken into account by giving the specified pre-tension, angle and stiffness of the mooring lines on the fairleads. And hydrodynamic analysis of Spar platform is performed by the way of utilizing potential flow theory in frequency domain in order to calculate the hydrodynamic coefficients. Then, static analysis is applied to obtain restoring stiffness curves for the mooring system, structure displacements and mooring line tensions etc.. At last, coupled time domain analysis of the motion response of Spar is conducted for the coupled system and the dynamic tensions of mooring lines are calculated. The research results can be served as a reference for the selection and the performance study for mooring systems during preliminary design.
