Webinar: Pushover analysis of jacket structures for life extension

Improvements in oil recovery techniques have spiked the interest in extending offshore structures beyond their designated lifetime, boosting the demand for asset reassessment and modification. In that context, pushover analysis is an attractive option for efficient evaluation of the reliability and residual strength of such platforms, significantly lowering costs of inspections and repairs. Are you looking to enhance your understanding of an asset’s collapse and post-collapse behavior for a safe extended operation?

  • How to include deformations and damages to members
  • Strategies to perform non-linear analysis
  • Perform collapse analysis with ductility and fracture criterion
  • Perform member redundancy analysis
  • Determine acceptance criterion for reserve strength ratio
  • Create non-linear models based on new or re-use legacy models
