Heave plates are installed in Spar platforms to improve the heave motion performance of the platforms. The heave plates not only increase the equivalent added mass of the platform but also provide extra damping to the system. This article presents an experimental study on the hydrodynamic characteristics of an isolate heave plate. The plate is forced to oscillate in the water at rest. The added mass and damping of the plate are used to represent its hydrodynamic characteristics. Influences of the thickness ratio, the plate shape, the corner radius and the porosity on the added mass and the damping coefficients of the heave plate are evaluated at various KC and β numbers.
