Special Issue Information
Current research and development activities for a range of floating offshore structures are being developed to support the world's energy and resource requirements. Understanding the fundamental hydrodynamic forces in the offshore environment is crucial to the success of future projects. Not only are floating platforms subject to loading from ocean waves, but also increased motion due to the wave–body interactions.
There is a variety of offshore structures, including renewable energy devices and aquaculture installations that require mooring systems to be kept in position. These floating structures are continuously subjected to environmental loadings from waves, currents, wind, etc. The motion response of floating structures is of great concern in marine engineering and in design of moorings for offshore structures. The dynamic nature of wave loads, and the non-linear response of moored structures is a complex problem. In addition, in order to develop a floating aquaculture with a mooring system which could meet global demand, increasing the cultivation capacity for fish production is also a priority. Designing floating net cages and mooring systems is of great concern to the marine aquaculture industry due to the potential structural failures in waves and currents during storm events.
To understand the hydrodynamics of floating structures with moorings, researchers have developed and applied several distinct approaches, including but not limited to model tests, numerical modelling based on potential-flow theory and computational fluid dynamics. The present Special Issue of the Journal of Marine Science and Engineering covers a broad scope of hydrodynamics and a mooring analysis of various floating structures. We encourage the submission of high-quality papers in the following areas:
- Hydrodynamics of floating bodies;
- Wave-induced loads on floating bodies;
- Innovative mooring design and analysis;
- Optimization of floating renewable energy devices;
- Offshore platforms;
- Numerical solutions;
- Computational fluid dynamics;
- Model tests;
- Reliability analysis;
- Extreme response;
- Offshore aquaculture systems.
