Abstract: The hydrodynamic analysis of the semi submersible platform was carried out for height. with and without mooring condition by changing the metacentric A physical model of scale 1 in 100 was tested in 1m widt hand 30 m long regular wave flume at CWR (Centre for Water Resource) Laboratory. The model has four rectangular columns and two rectangular pontoons along with mooring. The natural heave, pitch and roll periods of the semi-submersible have greatest impact on the downtime of platform operation. This paper focus on the influence of payloads on the hydrodynamic behavior semisubmersible platform. On the basis of present work, the configuration of Semi-submersible having four rectangular columns and two rectangular pontoons has been arrived at for the proposed desalination plant.
