Summary

This chapter presents details of the structural geometry of compliant offshore platforms while emphasizing the design and development of these platforms rather than of fixed platforms. Details of investigations carried out on the response control of a tension leg platform (TLP) and an articulated tower are presented. This chapter also presents various control strategies that are commonly deployed for response control of structures subjected to lateral loads while presenting detailed applications of tuned mass dampers (TMDs) in offshore structures. Experimental investigations and numerical analyses, reported by R. Ranjani (2015, “Response Control of Tension Leg Platform Using Tuned Mass Damper,” PhD thesis, IIT Madras, India) and Prof. Deepak Kumar (Dept. of Ocean Engineering, IIT Madras, India) are sincerely acknowledged by the authors.
