  • A simple model for a complex system is presented that contains the essential properties of the guyed tower. The dynamic response to wave load of a guyed tower is represented by a single degree of freedom model. Tower response, with different wave heights and hydrodynamic coefficients, using statically and dynamically determined mooring properties were calculated for a specific tower in 1100 ft (335 m) of water. The importance of this study lies in a good modeling of the cable forces, including… CONTINUE READING
