Free decay testing of a semisubmersible offshore floating platform for wind turbines in model scale
Wind turbines can be installed on floating platforms in order to use wind resources, which blow above the deep sea. The presented research investigates the hydrodynamic behaviour of the Olav Olsen Concrete Star floater in free decay motion. The floater is a new design of a semisubmersible offshore floating platform for wind turbines. The thesis describes the physical free decay testing of a 1/40 plastic scale model in a water basin as well as numerical simulations of the same test cases with the aero-hydro-servo-elastic ...
