LONG-TERM LOADING ANALYSIS OF FLOATING ICE PLATFORMS USING FINITE ELEMENT TECHNIQUES

The analysis of thickened sea ice floating platforms used as a support for offshore drilling in the Arctic Islands has been refined through the use of finite element techniques. Marc CDC programs were chosen for the calculations described in this paper. Both elastic and viscoelastic or creep stresses and strains were computed and deflections over time compared with an available case history. /Author/
