The aim here is to assess if the support platform structural elasticity has a substantial impact on the dynamic response of the platform. A beam model and a 3D solid model of the support structure have been developed, and the inertial forces, hydrodynamic added mass forces, hydrostatic and mooring restoring forces have been considered in the hydro-elastic analyses performed. The results show that the dynamic response to the wave loads is not substantially influenced by the elasticity of the support structure, and that, at first approximation, a rigid-body approach is acceptable.
