Abstract

Structural response and strength of a new-type VLFS, a pontoon-type VLFS having wave dissipating devise using submerged plates, surrounded by Floating Breakwater using Submerged Plate (FBSP), are investigated. Model tank test is carried out to examine the elastic response of the VLFS with submerged plates. Hydroelastic response analysis of the tank test model is performed to know the effect of fluid forces acting on the submerged plates on the elastic response of VLFS. The hydroelastic response analysis of the prototype VLFS surrounded by FBSP is performed without considering the attached submerged plate as a safe-side evaluation. The feasibility of the proposed VLFS is examined from the viewpoints of both structural safety and serviceability.
