The structural stability and safety of the floating structure during operation and maintenance is of concern for the performance of a renewable energy device that it might be supporting. The dynamic responses of the structure should thus be limited for these renewable energy devices to perform as intended. This issue is particularly important during the operation of a TLP in extreme weather conditions. Tuned liquid column dampers (TLCDs) can use the power of sloshing water to reduce surge motions of a floating TLP exposed to wind and waves. This paper demonstrates the potential of MTLCDs in reducing dynamic responses of a scaled TLP model through an experimental study. The potential of using output-only statistical markers for monitoring changes in structural conditions is also investigated through the application of a delay vector variance (DVV) marker for different conditions of control for the experiments.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||The Royal Society||Journal:||Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences||Volume:||373||Start page:||20140079||End page:||20140079||Copyright (published version):||2015 the Authors||Keywords:||Offshore wind energy; Tension-leg platform; Structural dynamics; Wave-induced vibrations; Surge motions; Tuned liquid column damper||DOI:||10.1098/rsta.2014.0079||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
