MonoBr is the name of a concept of a mono-column structure with a moon-pool developed by PETROBRAS to operate in deep water. A set of tests has been carried out at LabOceano / COPPE / UFRJ to analyze its behavior in waves. Different configurations of the moon-pool entrance have been tested. The main objective of the measurements carried out is to determine the influence of different restrictions on the behavior of the vertical motion of the structure. Results of these measurements are presented and discussed in the paper.
