Presented by Jideofor Collins Nwafor
The non-linear coupling of the gap resonance and hydrodynamics of and FLNG and a LNG carrier in proximity during side-by-side offloading operations has four important areas which need to be considered. This lecture will cover; (i) The complex hydrodynamic interaction due to the multi-body floating systems in proximity. (ii) The dynamic effect of the mooring lines. (iii) The coupling of the connection system (hawsers and fenders) to the hull of the vessels. (iv) The nonlinear effect of gap resonance on the hydrodynamics of the vessels.
This lecture will be presented using Zoom.
