Equivalent Stochastic Quadratization for Tension Leg Platform Response to Viscous Drift Forces
- 72 Downloads
The equivalent stochastic quadratization method is used in this chapter to analyze the response of a TLP to wave and current induced forces. The method is applied on an idealized TLP model with three degrees of freedom. To clearly evaluate the reliability of the equivalent stochastic quadratization method, only higher order wave forces due to viscous effects are considered in this chapter. In Chapter 6, the response of the TLP subject to both potential and viscous higher order forces is obtained.
