Abstract: This thesis focuses on the hydroelastic analysis of very large floating structures (VLFS), i.e. the study of the response of floating structures to surface water waves. The main objectives of this study are to study ways to mitigate the hydroelastic response of VLFS so as to improve its serviceability performance and also to advance the hydroelastic analysis under random water waves. In this study, the considered ways in reducing hydroelastic response of VLFS are the use of flexible connectors, gill cells and appropriate shapes. The studies carried out in the thesis provide new ideas in mitigating the hydroelastic response of VLFS. A framework for stochastic hydroelastic analysis of VLFS subjected to multidirectional irregular waves defined through a directional wave spectrum is developed. The results reported herein would be useful information to offshore and marine engineers working on VLFS.
