QUALITY ASSURANCE OF PROPOSED OFFSHORE CONCRETE STRUCTURES
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.
