An elongated, annular hull of a floating offshore platform includes one or more segmented, helical strakes disposed on an outer peripheral surface of the hull to reduce vortex-induced vibrations resulting from water currents. The hull may comprise a single annular hull or a plurality of parallel, adjacent hulls. Each strake includes a plurality of generally rectangular segments extending substantially radially outward from the hull. Each of the segments includes a pair of spaced-apart radial stanchions supporting a generally rectangular frame to which a ...
1. A strake for reducing vortex-induced vibrations acting on the hull of a floating offshore platform, the strake comprising a plurality of strake segments extending substantially radially outward from the hull and arranged in a spaced-apart, end-to-end relationship defining a discontinuous, generally helical band extending around the circumference of a lower portion of the hull, wherein each of the strake segments comprises:a pair of spaced-apart stanchions having inner ends attached to the hull and extending substantially radially outward from the hull...
