Bullwinkle's Big Brother
In 1980, the Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award went to Cognac, Shell Oil Co.'s then-tallest offshore platform. In 1989 the Bullwinkle platform became the new...

Seismic Assessment for Offshore Pipelines

Soil Improvement for Earthquake Hazard Mitigation
This proceedings, Soil Improvement for Earthquake Hazard Mitigation, contains the eight papers presented at two Geotechnical Engineering Division...

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...

Effects of SPT Equipment and Procedures on the Design of Shallow Foundations on Sand
The effect on our computations of bearing capacity and settlement of shallow foundations suggests that as more efficient SPT hammers and procedures are used, our shallow foundation designs...

Nonlinear Undrained Lateral Response of Rigid Drilled Shafts Using Continuum Theory
The nonlinear undrained response of rigid drilled shafts under static lateral and moment loading is evaluated within the context of elastic continuum theory. The approximate approach utilizes...

Performance Evaluation of Offshore Breakwaters a Field and Computational Study

Performance of Offshore Platforms in Hurricane Andrew

Probability of Severe Hurricanes Across the Gulf of Mexico

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...

Energy Facility Siting in Coastal Zones
Siting constraints to the development of coastal energy facilities may lengthen or complicate the siting process. These constraints have evolved over the history of coastal energy facilities....

Coastal Management and Ocean Industries in East Germany, from Central Planning Ineffectiveness Towards Local and Regional Development Strategies
In so far, the preconditions for the implementation of decentralized development tools both in coastal management and in ocean industries may be quite ideal in East Germany: there is the...

The Value of the Federal Oil/Gas OCS and Its Required Nexus with the Changing Perceived Quality of Rights
A particular few of thousands of hardly distinguishable and certainly previously undistinguished Federal OCS oil/gas tracts can suddenly become prizes of great value. Vice versa, prized...

Environmental Compliance and Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration and Production
The economic impacts of multiple environmental regulations of offshore oil and gas exploration and production are examined using an integrated, investment-production-regulatory model developed...
