LONG TERM RESPONSE OF GRAVITY PLATFORMS WITH LOAD DEPENDENT SOIL BEHAVIOR

This paper deals with evaluation of the long term response of gravity platforms subjected to ocean waves. The long term model of response is based on the principles of evolutionary stochastic processes. The main emphasis is laid on the treatment of nonlinear soil behaviour. This includes a presentation of a simplified soil model and a numerical solution procedure based on the stochastic linearization technique. Numerical results are presented displaying the influence of the nonlinear soil behaviour on the long term distribution of response.
