31-10-2014 Research on comfort levels for floating platforms

Morten Joe Slingsby, Master student Offshore Engineering at TU Delft, recently finished his internship at DeltaSync. In cohesion with our research for the Seasteading Insitute, we were very interested in the level of comfort of living on a seastead, more specifically two interconnected 50 by 50 meter platforms in the Gulf of Fonseca (Honduras). To analyse this, he both looked into what causes motion sickness or ill-comfort at sea and into the movements of these platforms. For the latter, an application was written that calculates accelerations of square platforms in any sea state, based on a theoretical approach. This application gives the freedom to calculate behavior of either 1 or 2 square platforms with sides ranging from 30 to 70 meters in any sea-state, and provides insight into the comfort level on the platform by comparing these accelerations with the human comfort levels for accelerations. These tolerance levels have been found by performing a literature review and are based on an ISO code. From the results of the application a recommendation can be given regarding the liveability of the Seasteading modules.


In addition to this research, the Seasteading Institute has entered the next phase of the Floating City project. A model of the design they produced in cooperation with DeltaSync is currently being tested in a towing tank at the university of New Orleans, School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering.
