This brief summarizes five current MIT research projects which can assist in the design of offshore structures--an area beset with critical engineering uncertainties: 1) Geotechnical Exploration Techniques; 2) In Situ Measurements in Marine Clay; 3) Application of Risk Analysis to Design; 4) Risk Analysis of Long-term Displacement of a Gravity Foundation under Wave Loading; 5) Probabilistic Model for Degradation of Foundation Stiffness in Steel Jacket Structures under Wave and Seismic Loads.
