Abstract

This paper presents the hydroelastic analysis of the large floating steel platform that was constructed on the Marina Bay in Singapore. The challenge posed in the hydroelastic analysis lies in modeling an equivalent plate that captures the dynamic flexural behaviour of the floating platform. By using a plate model with plate strips along the connecting boundaries of the floating platform, their Young's moduli and Poisson's ratios are adjusted so that the free vibration frequencies and mode shapes of the equivalent plate model match the results of the rigorous finite element model of the floating platform. The analysis shows that the hydroelastic response of the floating structure is relatively mild due to the calm waters in the Marina Bay when compared to the static bending response from imposed loads.
