This paper presents a methodology for the positioning of a turret based on the hydrodynamic behavior of the FPSO and the structural behavior of the mooring lines. It is presented a procedure for the simulation of the equilibrium and the dynamics of the FPSO’s for a range of environmental conditions and positions of the turret. The results are studied in order to define the best position for the turret. Experimental results are used in order to calibrate the physical models.
