Case Study: Analysis of the PLAT-O Taut-moored Platform

Download PDF

PLAT-O is designed as a taut-moored platform, which operates by balancing the buoyancy and drag forces on the system, using anchors and mooring lines. It is vital to understand the performance of the platform, i.e., how the system pitches, rolls, and yaws. The platform motion directly affects the loads on the mooring lines and anchors, which in turn affects the cost of the system.
