The dynamic analysis of a Tension Leg Platform (TLP) is investigated by combining wind and wave loads within the typhoon area. By considering different typhoon parameters, such as the tangential velocity, the radius of maximum velocity, the translational direction and velocity, the model of typhoon is established. The wave height and period are obtained by the empirical formula related to the parameters of typhoon. The nonlinear restoring stiffness of TLP is derived with the set-down motion of platform and the coupled motion of the tension leg and platform. The results in this paper indicates that typhoon has a major impact on the safety of the platform in production operation, and it is also a threat to the strength of tension legs and risers.
