Title: MODULAR FLOATING BUOY SYSTEM WITH MULTI-LAYERED SWING MECHANISM FOR STABILIZATION OF OFFSHORE PLATFORMS
Abstract:
The invention is about the joint balance mechanism of platforms used for entertainment or business purposes. The mechanism minimizes the rocking and lurching due to waves via its link between numerous buoys (1) and the platform (6). The mechanism has at least one sub- swing fork (4) that is connected with buoys (1) through cardan joint and which forms a group of minimum four buoys (1) by attaching onto them from their upper parts and the mechanism also has at least one top-swing arm (5) that is connected to the platform (6) with cardan joints from the top. This top-swing arm also connects at least four sub-swing fork (4) group to itself while it is attached to the midpoint of sub-swing arm (4) by cardan joints.
