... of these structures will be in open water. Therefore, the floating structures must perform well in both conditions.Conical sections at the waterline will induce nonlinear coupling in the hydrostatic restoring forces and moments. It is important to understand how this affects the behavior in both ice and open water...

..., i.e., by hydrostatic external pressure and by axial compression. Asymmetric bifurcation bucklings, collapse load in addition to the first yield pressure and first yield force, are computed using two independent proprietory codes in order to compare predictions given by them. Finally, selected cone...

...H. R. Riggs The formulation for the hydrostatic stiffness (restoring force) for linear rigid body hydrodynamics is well known, whereas there are several formulations in literature for the corresponding stiffness of flexible structures. Which of these formulations to use is not immediately obvious...

... models. The program, NSHIPMO, is an blended strip theory method using “impact” stations over the forward part of the ship and partially nonlinear stations over the rest. Body exact hydrostatics and Froude-Krylov excitation are used over the entire hull. The impact theory of Troesch and Kang [2...
