DESIGN APPRAISAL OF OFFSHORE PLATFORMS OF WELDED TUBULAR CONSTRUCTION

The various stages in the appraisal of the design of an offshore tubular steel platform have been outlined and consideration has been given to the problems of the fatigue analysis. It is in this area in particular that research is required to improve the accuracy. The research must be concentrated on the evaluation of peak strains at tubular connections and the improvement of the reliability of the allowable endurance curves.
