DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF THE NORTH SEA FORTIES FIELD PLATFORMS

The offshore structures of the Forties Field were investigated to determine their static and dynamic response to wave action. The dynamic analysis took into account the nondeterministic nature of waves by representing the sea as a wave spectrum. A comparison of the results of the dynamic response analysis and the static analysis demonstrate that for extreme weather conditions, the static design is adequate.
