Paper Number: OTC-29289-MS
..., which encompassed three available wind load estimation methods: empirical building block procedures, wind tunnel testing, and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). To permit an ‘apples-to-apples’ comparison, the same representative semisubmersible design was used by all participants, including a single...

... reassessment of the derrick, it became apparent that current methodologies may not properly determine the wind loads on a dual derrick. To determine if the existing 4F wind methodology was suitable for a dual derrick, BP undertook a program consisting of a literature review and wind tunnel testing. The testing...
