FATIGUE CONSIDERATIONS FOR SEMISUBMERSIBLE STRUCTURES

This paper contains a summary of methods and the quality of results obtainable with various fatigue analysis approaches to marine structures. The discussion is directed toward semisubmersibles, but is broadly applicable to many other structures. Areas of the analysis sequence that are not commonly found in existing marine literature are discussed in more detail than the standard naval architecture calculations. Adequate references are given for the technique to be independently developed with a relatively small engineering effort. The method has been applied to numerous structures with excellent results being provided for relative fatigue susceptibility.
