Abstract

Ocean current should be carefully defined during analysis and design of any deep-water system. This study focuses on introducing and testing a proposed simplified method—namely, a weighted current profile (WCP)—in filtering current profiles from a large database so the response analysis of a deep-water system can be carried out more efficiently. The method is tested for the operation of a deep-water work class remotely operated vehicle (ROV), connected to the surface vessel through an umbilical line, under more than 10,000 current profiles. The study reveals that the WCP method can successfully eliminate thousands of unnecessary current profiles from a big database.
