This course covers ultimate strength and progressive collapse analysis of framed offshore structures using Usfos. Training focus is put on plastic limit state analysis of jackets subjected to extreme environmental loads (wave, wind and current) and accidental loads (ship collision, dropped objects and explosion).
The following topics will be covered:
- Model Conversion
- Pushover Analysis (Fixed Jacket)
- Initial Imperfections and Fracture
- Joint Capacity Check
- Pushover Analysis (Piled Jacket)
- Boat Impact Analysis
- Redundancy Analysis
- Blast Analysis
- Dropped Object Analysis
Structural Engineers performing integrity assessment, collapse analysis, accidental analysis, and life extension analysis of offshore jacket platforms.
