Hence there was a need to perform hydroelastic analyses to estimate the structure and connector loads when the floating platform was exposed to the action of waves found in the Marina Bay (Wang et al. 2008a). The challenge posed in the hydroelastic analysis was the modelling of an equivalent plate that captures the dynamic flexural behaviour of the floating stage. The floating platform was modelled as a thin plate and numerical technique was used to solve the fluid-structure interaction to determine the vibration frequencies and model stresses of the floating structure.
The concept was to create a large usable space on water for mass spectator events and to design it as a multi-purpose facility to be used as an alternate site for sporting activities while the new Singapore Sports Hub1 was being developed as well as for mega festivities, cultural performances and water activities. 1 The old National Stadium at Kallang was demolished in 2006.
