This course focuses on analysis of jackets including the environment (hydrodynamic environment and pile-soil foundation). Concept modelling of the jacket and environment is done in GeniE, wave load analysis in Wajac, non-linear pile-soil analysis in Splice, linear static analysis in Sestra and, finally, code checking of beams and tubular joints in GeniE. The course also focuses re-design of member. Fatigue analysis in Framework using a deterministic, stochastic and spectral (static and dynamic) approach is presented.
Learn how to model jackets with tubular joints, compute wave and wind loads, perform structure-pile-soil interaction analysis, code check the results (member check and punching shear check) and perform fatigue analysis. The exercise is based on a jacket structure including environment.
Structural engineers performing offshore structural engineering and design engineering of jackets and jack-ups.
