Abstract

This study focuses on the hydrodynamics behaviour of a floating breakwater with taut-leg mooring configuration. The aim of the study is to understand the motion responses of the Htype floating breakwater on the motion responses of the floating breakwater that subjected to the regular wave. This study focuses only on the heave, surge and pitch movement, whilst the other motion responses were restricted. During the past studies of this H-float, small numbers of tests were conducted due to budget and time constraints. The tests conducted were confined to limited test ranges such as wave period, breakwater draft and also water depth. To tackle this issue, thorough study has been carried out on the related subjects and also the development of the previous floating breakwater. The model with a scale of 1:15 will be tested in the 25 meter long wave flume with a total of 132 tests each for regular. Other equipment that will be used in the test is wave paddle, wave probe, wave absorber, data logger, and OPTITRACK. The variable parameters for this study include wave period, wave height and breakwater draft. During the test, this model will be moored with taut leg mooring system, in order to avoid excessive movement experienced due the wave actions. Finally, In order to quantify the motion responses of the floating breakwater, the Response Amplitude Operator (RAO) was utilized in this study. The RAO values for heave, surge and pitch obtained in the study will provide an insight on the extent of the movement of the H-type floating breakwater subjected to various wave condition.
