Advanced structural design and analysis (C3)

Venue: University of Strathclyde

Staff: Professor N Barltrop

Aims: To develop an understanding of the advanced methods of structural analysis including ultimate strength analysis and thus to establish the reserve and residual strength of a structure.

Module Content: The module will combine formal lectures and tutorial exercises. The module will cover the following topics:

  • Evolution of rule based design and its application to a ship structure.
  • Ultimate strength calculation of flat and curved stiffened plate structure.
  • Ultimate strengh of stiffened cylinders, as components of TLP and semi-submersible structures.
  • Design of submarine structure.
  • Ultimate strength of hull girder structure.
  • Case studies of structural failures.

Learning outcomes: On completion of this course the students should understand the ultimate strength behaviour of structural components and systems.
