(This article belongs to the Special Issue Dynamic Instability in Offshore Structures)
The occurrence of parametric resonance due to the time varying behavior of ocean waves could lead to catastrophic damages to offshore structures. A stable structure that could withstand the wave perturbations is quintessential to operate in such a harsh environment. In this work, the authors detail the relevance of a Suction Stabilized Float (SSF) or a Suction Stabilized Floating platform towards such an application. A generic design of a symmetrically shaped float structure along with its inherent stabilization behavior is discussed. Furthermore, the authors extend their prior research on this topic towards modelling the dynamics of SSF and perform stability analysis. The authors demonstrate the dynamical characteristics of SSF analytically using Floquet theory and Normal Forms technique, in this work. Additionally, the simulation results are verified and validated with the numerical methods. View Full-Text
