Perforated cylindrical structures are extensively used in near-shore breakwaters to reduce wave-structure interaction and scouring; however use of perforated members on floating offshore structures is not widespread. Current study investigates the influence of perforated members on the dynamic response of Tension Leg Platforms (TLP) through model testing. Detailed experimental investigations are carried out on the scale model of TLP with and without porous outer cover, under unidirectional regular waves. Based on studies conducted, it is shown that fluid-structure interaction is reduced in the presence of outer perforated covers; as a result, surge and pitch responses decrease.
