Paper Title:
Parameter Calculation of Viscous Damper Applied in the Truncated Model Test Design of a Deepwater Semi-Submersible Platform
  Abstract

In the equivalent water depth truncated model test design of a deepwater semi-submersible platform, the viscous damper is designed to simulate the contribution of mooring damping to total damping of floating platform. The dissipated energy by a mooring line from the floating platform as a result of its oscillation is applied to calculate the mooring-induced damping. The mooring line and seabed interaction is based on the hypothesis of rigid seabed. The fluid drag force and inertia force on the mooring line are calculated according to the Morrison formula. The non-liner dynamic analysis of mooring line is executed in the time domain based on the finite element method. The mooring induced damping is obtained from the results. The value difference of mooring induced damping between the truncated and full-depth mooring line is linearized to provide parameter for the design of viscous damper.
