Abstract

In this study, dynamic analysis is conducted on a Floating Mooring Line-Driven Platform (FMDP) subjected to sea wave forces. The effect of changing mooring lines pattern is investigated to enhance the dynamic behavior of the FMDP. The analysis is demonstrated with six mooring lines FMDP. A new mooring lines pattern (6-3-3) is studied and compared with the (6-6) Stewart-Gough manipulator pattern. The dynamic behavior, cables tension, and platform stiffness are determined across FMDP effective area. The dynamic analysis of FMDP is improved using the new mooring lines pattern (6-3-3).
