As a multifunction floating platform, Floating Drilling, Production, Storage and Offloading (FDPSO) combining the well-known Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) with a drilling unit. For the environment condition of deep-water oilfield is very severe, the motion response and mooring line tension of FDPSO is a worthy topic of studying. In this study, the numerical time-domain coupled prediction method for the mooring line tension and motion response of FDPSO system is constructed by ANSYS AQWA software. Furthermore, the results of a model test conducted in Harbin Engimeering University are used to investigate the feasibility and validity of the commercial simulation. The effect of mooring line pre-tension on the response of FDPSO is studied by varying the pre-tension of mooring line during the calculation. The time series curve of the mooring line tension and motion response, and the comparison of motion spectrum and mooring line tension spectrum are provided in this article.
