Design requirements for fixed offshore platforms by Chevron | Naoufel Riahi –

This paper does not discuss the very important but less quantifiable concepts of structural redundancy and the ability to redistribute loads from non-performing structural elements. Remember me on this computer. Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ LRFD however, apl an improved approach to structural design which takes into account the possible uncertainties in the applied loads and component resistances.


The study is based on work performed for Woodside as part of the substructure design for the Goodwyn ‘A’ Platform.

This new interaction equation provides a better fit to the available test data than does the arc sine expression in the 21st edition.

Washington, DC L St. Register now while it’s still free! Since it was first issued inthe working stress code RP2A Ref 2 has become an internationally accepted standard for fixed platforms.

Should partial action factors be revised to achieve the same aoi levels? This paper also discusses the different partial load factors applicable to gravity loads when improved accuracy of weight control is effected, and applicable to environmental load when yearor year return period extreme environmental criteria are used in the North Sea.

Home About Help Search. Although fundamental differences exist between the WSD and LRFD versions, the two documents remain remarkably similar with the LRFD draft containing most of the carefully phrased clauses which are familiar to many practicing engineers.
