The Inelastic Response of an Offshore Platform in Hurricane Andrew
Amoco's Gulf of Mexico South Timbalier 161A platform took a direct hit from Hurricane Andrew in August of 1992, experiencing loads which far exceeded its design load. The platform had...

Nonlinear Collapse of Offshore Jacket Structures
The Joint Industry Tubular Frames Project was established with ten oil industry sponsors to investigate the reserve and residual strength of frames typical of offshore structures. To date...

Impact of Non-Gaussian pdf on Reliability Estimates for Deep Water Platforms
The offshore community has invested a great deal in the analysis and design of compliant deep water platforms such as tension leg platforms (TLPs) and more recently spar platforms. Tension...

Effects of Sea Surface Movement on Offshore Structures
Examinations are made of the effects of the sea surface movement on the fundamental model response of deep-water, Wave-excited offshore structures. These effects are accounted for by using...

Analysis of Unstiffened and Stiffened Tubular Members Under External Pressure and Structural Loads
This paper summarizes some important results concerning the ultimate capacity of stiffened and unstiffened tubes under combined loading. Such tubes are candidates for use in offshore structures...

Performance Evaluation of Offshore Breakwaters a Field and Computational Study

The Effect of Nonlinear Drag PSD on Fatigue of Compliant Offshore Structures
Structural fatigue damage induced by random ocean wave loading on a compliant type of offshore structure is considered. The nonlinear wave force is modeled by the Morison equation and...

Fatigue of Floating Offshore Structures: Modelling Uncertainty in Hydrodynamics and Fatigue Properties
For floating offshore structures such as tension leg platforms (TLPs), one form of loading uncertainty is due to nonlinear diffraction forces, which can excite lightly damped vertical...

Time Variant Reliability Under Environmental Loads
Time variant reliability with deteriorating resistance under a stochastic load process is considered. An outcrossing formulation for fatigue degradation is presented, and a simple and...

The Megabight Barrier / Maglev Way—Innovative Siting of High Speed Ground Transportation...Offshore
Air and road traffic congestion around cities, e.g., in the BOSWASH corridor, can be reduced by high speed rail systems. But high speed trains on elevated rails/guideways encounter extra...
