Abstract

This paper introduces hydrodynamic aspects of in-place TLP tendon design and analysis with emphases on TLP hull/tendon/riser coupled dynamic analysis; tendon Mathieu instability; tendon springing and ringing responses; tendon bottom tension slacking due to wave overtopping; and tendon vortex induced vibration (VIV).
