Catchment regions of multiple dynamic responses in nonlinear problems of offshore mechanics.


Journal Article

This paper concentrates on the computation of the domains of attraction or catchment regions using numerical techniques based on Poincare mapping ideas. The three specific examples illustrated are the roll motion of a ship, the oscillations of an articulated column and the surge response of a moored semisubmersible.
