**analysis**to calculate fluid particle accelerations, velocities and dynamic pressure. The corresponding wave forces are calculated by the well known Morison equation.Page 87

The results of experimental modal

The results of experimental modal

**analysis**and finite element calculation of both platforms indicate that they exhibit not only bending vibrations in the x and y directions but obvious torsional vibrations of lower modes .Page 129
