Abstract:
Floating structures, such as Spar platform, are likely to experience significant motions while operation due to Vortex-induced Motion (VIM). The main features of VIM include aspect ratio and mass ratio of the structure. This paper focuses on further development of a previously published semi-empirical method called wake oscillator model (WOM) for VIM, which aims to derive a mathematical correlation in modelling all features of the phenomenon. Analytical solution is proposed to coupled WOM and structure oscillator model based on the Van der Pol equation by integrating mass ratio, m* = 4.36, and various low aspect ratios between 0.3 and 2.0. Additionally, a new approach was initiated to embed several empirical parameters linked to the aspect ratio in the existing WOM. It was found the aspect ratio parameter in the modified WOM significantly affected the performance of the model for estimation of VIM on floating structures.
