  Tension-Leg Platform (TLP) is a vertically moored floating structure. The platform is permanently mooredby tendons. Surge equation of motion of TLP is highly nonlinear because of large displacement and it should be solved with perturbation parameter in time domain. This paper compare the dynamic ...  Read More
