Roll motions of ultradeep water FPSOs based on a comparison of calculations model tests and full-scale measurements on the Girassol FPSO
Full-scale measurements of the motions of the Girassol FPSO are available over a one-year period. During this same period also vessel draft, wave height and wave direction have been recorded. This allows the calculation of motion transfer functions as function of the FPSO loading condition.
