Design of Modular Structures for the Arctic
Sohio's efforts to continue the production and initial processing oil from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska requires additional production enhancement equipment on the Alaskan North Slope...

Repair Welding of Arctic Offshore Structures and Vessels
This paper describes the welding procedure development for repair or field modifications of offshore drilling structures and vessels made with several different steel grades produced for...

Wave Forces on an Arctic Monotower Platform
At offshore lease sites located along the western coast of Alaska, longer periods of open water can be expected. As a result, wave induced hydrodynamic loading will become a more significant...

Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis of Reinforced Concrete in Engineering Practice

Port of Long Beach Supertanker Terminal
The supertanker marine terminal and crude-oil transfer facility at Berth 121 on Pier E in the Port of Long Beach, California is the largest tanker-handling berth on the West Coast. This...

Transient Loads on Offshore Platforms During a Subsea Well Blowout

A Unique Design for an Offshore Water Intake

Waterfront Electric Cone Penetration Testing
Offshore deployment methods developed for use by the oil industry were combined with less expensive nearshore drill barge technology. This resulted in the successful completion of cone...

In Situ Testing of Calcareous Sand—Campos Basin
Sampling and in situ testing were used to investigate soil conditions for the installation of offshore platforms at the Campos Basin, Brazil. At these sites calcareous sand formations...

North American Standard Penetration Test Practice: An Essay
The Standard Penetration Test (SPT) is the in situ mechanical soil test most used by North American geotechnical practitioners. The equipment and procedures of the test have periodically...

Amplification of Wind Effects on Compliant Platforms

Risk Analysis Due to Wave Statistical Uncertainties in the Design of Offshore Structures

Wind Effects on Compliant Offshore Structures
In recent years modern experimental and analytical techniques for estimating wind effects have increasingly been applied to compliant offshore structures. The six papers included in this...

Wind Effects on Semisubmersibles and Other Floating Offshore Structures

Effect of Seismic Wave Inclination on Structural Response
A new procedure is developed using the computer program SASSI to evaluate the effects of inclined propagating shear waves on three-dimensional seismic soil-structure interaction (SSI)...

Drilling Unit Approval and Sea Ice, Alaska OCS
This paper describes types of ice conditions that have been, or could be, encountered while conducting Alaska Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) operations. The types of ice monitoring programs,...
