Lloyd's Register's interpretation of Quality Assurance is to perform sufficient independent analyses to validate the overall integrity of the platform. This includes determination of critical wave/current leadings, wind and deck loads; soil/base analysis using the Nastran finite element package and a 3-dimensional model; a global analysis of the platform using Nastran to determine internal loads within the structure; checking the intact stabilty during the towing and submergence phases; checking fundamental modes and appraising all submitted plans, calculations and test results. The paper illustrates these techniques with reference to existing and proposed concrete designs.
