Model-based prediction of vessel response is valuable for planning and execution of marine operations. Response-based operation criteria are expected to give less downtime and cheaper and safer operations than criteria based on wave height and wave period. At least this holds if the response model has sufficient accuracy. The accuracy can in principle be improved by tuning the model using measured inputs and outputs. It is envisioned that an advisory system for planning and execution of marine o
Investigating a Simplified Model for Moonpool Piston Mode Response in Irregular Waves
Estimating moonpool piston mode response at resonance is important for operation safety. This is a difficult task, in particular, due to nonlinear nature of the moonpool response connected to the damping imposed by the flow separation at the moonpool’s inlet. In the present work, the applicability...

Investigation on Moonpool Blockage by Box Shaped Object Close to Free Surface
An experimental and numerical investigation of a box-shaped object in moonpool; a three-dimensional study
The forced heave motion of a dummy ship model with moonpool, including a fixed box-shaped object, was realized experimentally in the Towing tank at MARINTEK. The blockage effect caused by a large object was investigated. Regular and irregular forced heave motions were imposed. In the regular motion...
