For better utilization of ocean and coastal space, hydrocarbon products can be stored in the floating tanks, which can be enclosed by barge system. The barge system can be moored through pile foundations. The tanks are moored through marine fenders connected to barges. In the system, hydrodynamic and mechanical interaction problems are involved. Different scenarios including two barge, three barge and four barge systems are investigated. In addition, one tank plus four barge system are also studied. Hydrodynamic interactions between different bodies are firstly studied to investigate the significance of interaction. Different barge configurations are then considered in terms of mechanical interaction significance. Tank dynamic responses with and without hydrodynamic interaction are evaluated.
