This paper presents the experimental results obtained by means of model tests, focused on the analysis of the influence of current effects in the dynamic behavior of a semi-submersible. The tests were accomplished with and without current, in order to establish the comparison basis. As an additional investigation procedure, the experimental results were compared to a numerical code based on the potential theory. As will be seen, considerable changes in the natural periods and in the damping levels was observed.
