Experimental Research on the Influences of Wave Height on Towing of 4-Bucket Foundation Platform
Internal air pressure and water pressure of the buckets foundation, acceleration and dragging force of the 4-bucket foundation platform were determined to analyze the influences of wave height on towing when 4-Bucket foundation platform is towing in conditions of a certain towing velocity, mooring point position and draught in different regular waves based on the model test. Comparing platform towing in following and head waves, the heave motion of the latter is more strenuous than that of the former; the stability and seakeeping of the former is better than those of the latter. Roll motion, pitch motion and heave motion appear aggravate phenomenon with the increase of wave height.
