VIBRATION RESPONSE AND THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF DEEPWATER STRUCTURES

Offshore development into deeper waters requires new instrumentation and monitoring techniques to help engineers, owners, and governmental agencies establish design criteria and assess structural performance in a hostile ocean environment. The first part of this brief deals with the use of vibration response as a technique for measuring structural failure; the second section discusses using the liquid loadings onboard offshore structures as a method for damping the structural frequency and reducing stress.
