Dynamic Fatigue Assessment of Fixed Offshore Platform
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper a practical method for dynamic fatigue assessment of jacket-type offshore structure is investigated. Fatigue is a primary mode of failure for steel structures that are subjected to dynamic loads. For offshore structures the main source of fatigue inducing stress range are ocean waves. The spectral approach to fatigue analysis is an attempt to account for the random nature of a confused sea in a rational manner. An accurate procedure for the random vibration computation of structure is developed using frequency domain techniques. To illustrate the aforementioned methodology, a jacket type offshore platform in the Persian Gulf has been selected.

Using multiple tuned mass dampers to control offshore wind turbine vibrations under multiple hazardsZuo, H.; Bi, K.; Hao, Hong (2017)Offshore wind turbines can be built larger and lighter than they used to be due to the application of new materials. These large and flexible structures are vulnerable to external vibration sources such as wind, sea wave ...
Influence of Asphalt Pavement Conditions on Fatigue Damage of Orthotropic Steel Decks: Parametric AnalysisCui, C.; Zhang, Q.; Hao, Hong; Li, Jun; Bu, Y. (2018)The function of asphalt pavement on orthotropic steel decks (OSDs) is to transmit and disperse the concentrated wheel loading to the bridge structure and to strengthen the local stiffness of the OSD. Fatigue damage in ...
