Abstract


Floating structures elements are part of complex systems in which climatic agents, those derived from human interaction during use and exploitation and freedom constraints are applied. Such complexity requires different analysis techniques for its comprehension This paper presents a methodology to define and optimize operationality thresholds of floating structures using a global scaled simulator in which all agents and system’s responses are modeled during a complete operational process.

Keywords


operationality thresholds; floating structures; simulator; floating gate; physical modeling
