Abstract: Parametric resonance of offshore crane cable was predicted by using Mathieu equation to provide structural safety prediction during subsea lowering operation. This paper studied the predicting method and automatic resonance avoidance of offshore crane cable to complement the safety management during subsea lowering operation. The offshore crane cable was modeled as a tensioned long cylindrical structure and Mathieu instability coefficients were utilized to predict the dynamic instability of the structure. Numerical analyses were conducted to predict the parametric resonance of cable, evaluate the sensitivity of effective submerged length, dynamic tension variation, and plan for resonance avoidance mechanism automatically. Dynamic instability at sub-harmonic 2:1 unstable region of Mathieu stability diagram potentially creates high risk for lowering operation if the damping coefficient is low. Dynamic tension variation can cause instability of offshore crane cable during passing through wave splash zone and landing subsea payload. The reduction of axial tension variation can stabilize the dynamic of offshore crane cable. Parametric resonance of cable is also sensitive to the total payload. The findings of this paper can enhance structural integrity prediction of offshore crane cable and provide an automatic planner to the operator to avoid parametric resonance during subsea lowering operation.
