This course covers ultimate strength and progressive collapse analysis of steel space frame structures using Usfos. Focus is put on plastic limit state analysis of jackets subjected to accidental loads (ship collision, dropped objects, fire and explosion) and extreme environmental loads (wave, wind and current).
Learn how to import models created by GeniE into Usfos and add non-linear data necessary to perform progressive collapse analysis. The participant will also learn how to present and understand the results. The exercise is based on a jacket.
Structural engineers performing hydrodynamic analysis and ultimate strength, accidental and life extension analysis of jackets.
