  • Published 2015


This thesis researches the change of the hydrodynamics of jack-up spudcans close to the seabed and the influence of this change on calculated jack-up motions. Two GustoMSC jack-up designs are selected as typical: a large drilling jack-up (CJ-70), and a small wind turbine installation vessel (NG-2500X). Limits for allowable wave heights during jack-up… (More)
