Published Online: June 3, 2009
...Lin Hong; Jørgen Amdahl; Ge Wang The performance and consequence of FPSOs subjected to large impact loads such as collisions from supply vessels or merchant vessels are of great concern in the offshore industry, notably when they are located close to heavy traffic lanes. Due to the lack...

...J. Zang; R. Gibson; P. H. Taylor; R. Eatock Taylor; C. Swan The objective of this research, part of the EU FP5 REBASDO Program, is to examine the effects of second order wave diffraction in wave run-up around the bow of a vessel (FPSO) in random seas. In this work, the nonlinear wave scattering...

...K. C. Ewans; L. Vanderschuren; P. S. Tromans The motion response of an FPSO is sensitive to the relative intensities and directions of the wind-sea and swell components in a sea state, and the operability of the FPSO is a function of the long-term variation in these components. Estimations...

...Johan E. W. Wichers Maneuvering models for tanker based FPSOs are somewhat different from the classical maneuvering models. The reasons are zero or low forward speed (current), large mean drift angles, small values of rate of turn and relatively large low frequency (lf) transverse and yaw motions...

... of VLCC to FPSO has been adopted to work in the exploitation of oil in deep water. This has motivated many studies about the dynamics of this kind of structures exposed to the environmental conditions: wind, currents and waves. The present paper deals with the dynamics of ships in the horizontal plane...

...Sergio H. Sphaier; Antonio C. Fernandes; Sylvio H. S. Correa; Gustavo A. V. Castro The discovery of new fields in deep water brought back the use of large ships such as FPSOs. This seems to be the trend toward ultra deep water units at least in offshore Brazil. At about the same time, VLCCs (very...
