Abstract

In this study, a program for dynamic response simulation of a floating bridge subjected to both winds and waves have been developed. The program is able to handle the following matters at the same time: 1) the elastic deformation of the floating bridge, 2) the memory effect of the radiation wave forces, and 3) nonlinear restoring force characteristics of the mooring systems. The oblique incidence of waves and winds are able to be handled also. The developed program has been compared with the experimental results using the wave tank located in a wind tunnel, and good agreement between the simulated results and the experimental results has been obtained.
