A marine structure includes a base which is to be founded upon the sea bed. An elastic pre-stressed column is rigidly fixed to and extends upwardly from the base. A buoyant, rigid structure is fixed to the upper end of the upstanding elastic column. The buoyant, rigid structure includes a submerged part and a part projecting up above the sea level to support a deck superstructure. The pre-stressed elastic column is designed to deflect in a curved manner when the buoyant, rigid structure is subjected to environmental forces. In particular, the first nautr...
A marine structure comprising a base which is intended to be founded to the sea bed, at last one elastic prestressed column which is rigidly fixed to and extending up from the base and a buoyant, rigid structure comprising a submerged part and a part projecting up above the sea level to support a deck superstructure, the lower end of the submerged part being rigidly fixed to the upper end of the at least one elastic, prestressed column, the cross sectional area of the at least one elastic, prestressed column being substantially smaller than the cross sec...
