AbstractA 1:40 scale model test program was conducted in regular and irregular waves on the preliminary Gravity Base Structure(GBS) design for the Hibernia Oil Field. The objective was to develop and demonstrate techniques associated with model testing of GBS for purposes of engineering design. Data measured during the tests included (1) global loads and moments
