Design of fixed and floating offshore systems (C10)

Venue: University of Strathclyde

Staff: Professor A Incecik, Professor Shan Huang

Aims: to be able to take the hydrodynamic, structural and statistical theory learned and to understand its detailed application to the design of a fixed or floating offshore platform.

Module Content: To revise loading on offshore structures and functional requirements for vessels for exploration, production, installation, maintenance, etc.

To study the design of fixed platforms to the ISO standard and to understand the background to this code:

  • Wave, current, wind, functional, fire and blast actions
  • Key aspects of jacket frame and topside behaviour
  • Jacket and topside joints and members
  • Foundations
  • Extreme loading and fatigue analysis

To study the design of floating platforms to the ISO standard guidelines and to relate the background of these codes and to undertake an outline floating platform design:

  • Wave, current, wind, functional, fire and blast actions
  • Key aspects of floating platform behaviour (FPSO, spar, semi, TLP)
  • Mooring system/tether and anchor design
  • Rigid/flexible riser system design

Learning outcomes: On completion of this course the students should learn the response of offshore structures under environmental loading including hydrodynamic loading.
