VERIFICATION OF A SIMPLIFIED METHOD TO EVALUATE THE CAPACITIES OF TEMPLATE-TYPE PLATFORMS

This paper summarizes the development of simplified procedures to evaluate storm loadings imposed on template-type platforms and to evaluate the ultimate limit state lateral loading capacities of such platforms. Verification of these procedures has been accomplished by comparing results from the simplified analyses with results from three-dimensional, linear and nonlinear analyses of a variety of template-type platforms. Good agreement between results from the two types of analyses has been developed for the evaluations of both loadings and capacities.
