Abstract

The existence of ocean current greatly affects the performance of any deep-water operation and should be carefully defined during analysis and design of any deep-water system. This study focuses on introducing and testing a new proposed simplified method, namely the weighted current profile (WCP), in filtering vertical 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 underwater operation of a deepwater work class Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), connected to surface vessel through an umbilical line, under more than ten thousand current profiles. The study reveals that the proposed WCP method can be used successfully in eliminating thousands of unnecessary current profiles from a big database.
