The present work is dealing with the quasi-static motion response analysis of a Gas Import Floating Terminal that is moored through a turret mooring system. The results of the analysis presented here is part of the work undertaken by the Division of Marine Structures, School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, National Technical University of Athens (NTUA-MS), within the GIFT project that is supported by the EU (GIFT, 2005). The results concern the response of the mooring system and the associated behavior of the floating terminal under specific operating and survival conditions. In addition to the quasi-static responses, the slowly varying motions of the vessel are calculated by applying appropriate frequency domain solution techniques. Finally, some first comparisons between the numerical predictions and pertinent experimental data of physical model tests are given and discussed.
