Probabilistic Design of Offshore Structural Systems
Probabilistic design of structural systems is considered in this paper. The reliability is estimated using first-order reliability methods (FORM). The design problem is formulated as the...

EXPSYS: Offshore Structures' Expert System
This paper builds a framework of an expert system in the area of offshore structures. Expert systems, in general, are classification systems. They embody a core of knowledge about a specific...

On Modelling the Nonlinear Relationship Between Random Fields by Means of Higher-Order Spectra
This paper addresses the input-output relationship of nonlinear systems that may be expressed in terms of a hierarchy of linear, quadratic and higher-order transfer functions or corresponding...

Resolving Reliability Issues for an Offshore Platform Code
A fixed steel offshore platform design specification based on reliability concepts has been developed which could become an alternate to the existing working stress code, American Petroleum...

Mathematical Model of Wave Induced Pressures
A two-dimensional, implicit finite difference model was built to compute surface wave induced pressures under a gravity base foundation. The results showed considerable wave attenuation...

The Use of a 1/10th Scale Model to Design a Deep Water Flume

The Design of Pocket Beaches Using a Physical Model

Artificial Beach Design, Lake Forest, Illinois
A system of beaches and offshore breakwaters was designed to protect eroding bluffs along the shoreline of the City of Lake Forest. The beach system consists of sand fill contained by...

Tractive Flows Adjacent to Site for Submarine Sewage Pipeline
Twin 3200 m long submarine sewage pipelines for the city of Vancouver are being placed across the outer tidal flats and upper slope of the Fraser River delta to a water depth of 107 m....

CZMA Consistency Revisited: A Mechanism to Mitigate OCS Impacts?
With the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA) recently reauthorized for five years and recent legal developments regarding consistency, this is the ideal time to revisit the question: are...

Oilfield Development vs. Waterfowl in Arctic Alaska (abstract)
The newest oilfield in Alaska is the Lisburne field under development by ARCO Alaska, Inc. , Standard Alaska Production, and Exxon. The Lisburne field is completely surrounded by the older...

Major Offsite Mitigation: Batiquitos Lagoon
This paper discusses the general characteristics of the Batiquitos Lagoon Enhancement Project near Carlsbad, California, which will provide mitigation for a pipeline project in San Pedro...

Oil Rigs: Biology, Mariculture, Drilling Muds, Rigs-to-Reefs
Oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Barbara Channel provide hard substrates, diverse habitats and excellent breeding grounds from the sea floor through the splash zone. As a...
