SNAME to study wind tunnel testing of MODUs, floating production installations

Posted on 18 March 2013

The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) has announced it is initiating a review of SNAME T&R Bulletin 5-4 Guidelines on Wind Tunnel Testing of Mobile Offshore Drilling Units. The review, to be carried out under the auspices of the SNAME Offshore Committee’s Panel on Stability and Motions (OC-1), will consider the development of guidance on the foundation for acceptable wind tunnel tests and their most consistent and effective application and examine other means to advance field test methods and new technologies.

The work effort is likely to be supported by one or more joint industry projects. Participation in this effort is not exclusive to SNAME members. To participate or get more information, contact Andy Breuer at +1-281-877-6566 or Jim Brekke +1-281-877-6540 at the American Bureau of Shipping.
