Developing a methodology for model tests of floating platforms in a towing tank of low depth

Abstrakt

The paper presents two ways to mooring model of semi-submersible platform for research in the small depth towing pool. The tested model was made in the likeness of 1:100 Thunder Horse platform moored in the Gulf of Mexico at a depth of 1,920 m. Its mooring system consisted of 16 semi-taut mooring lines (chain-wire-chain) spaced Star-shape and attached at the bottom to the suction piles. The tests were performed in the towing pool of the Gdansk University of Technology (GUT). The depth of the pool equal 1.5 m is about 13.5 times less than that required for a typical model tests . This required the development and use of non-standard methods of mooring the model adapted to the technical conditions existing in the laboratory and material possibilities. The paper presents two mooring systems of the model and calculated the characteristics of static displacement of the model as a function of the external horizontal load . These characteristics were scaled to the natural conditions and compared with the calculated characteristics of the reference platform .
