Influence of Heave Plate on the Flow-Induced Motions of a Floating Offshore Wind Turbine

Abstract Flow-induce motions (FIM) small-scale model tests were performed for the Jappaku floating offshore wind turbines (JPK), a FOWT developed to operate in Brazilian waters. This […]

Experimental Study on Vortex-Induced Motions of Floating Circular Single Cylinders with Low Aspect Ratio and Different Heave Plate Geometries

Abstract Experiments regarding vortex-induced motions (VIM) of floating circular cylinders with low aspect ratio, 𝐿/𝐷 = 2.0, and different heave plate configurations were carried out in […]

Experimental study of the column shape and the roughness effects on the vortex-induced motions of deep-draft semi-submersible platforms

Abstract Experiments regarding the VIM of SS platforms with four columns were carried out to investigate the effects of the surface roughness and the column shape. […]
