MetadataShow full item record
Semi-submersible platforms are widely utilized but may subject to excessive vibrations during their service lives. This thesis aims to study the performance of inerter-based control systems in reducing the vibrations of semi-submersible platforms subjected to wave load. Three inerter-based control systems are proposed, and extensive analytical and experimental studies are performed to evaluate the control effectiveness of these inerter-based control systems.

Mitigation of heave response of semi-submersible platform (SSP) using tuned heave plate inerter (THPI)Ma, R.; Bi, Kaiming; Hao, Hong (2018)The undesirable motions resulting from wave loading can lead to the long-term fatigue damage or even catastrophic sinking of offshore semi-submersible platforms (SSP). It is therefore by all means necessary to suppress ...

(2019)The undesirable vortex-induced vibration (VIV) may seriously influence the fatigue life and serviceability of bridge structures. It is important to take countermeasures to suppress the adverse VIV of long-span bridges. ...
