Offshore Structural Design Using Model Analysis

On 24 March last, the Institution’s Informal Study Group ‘Model Analysis as a Design Tool’ organised a half-day colloquium on the subject ‘Offshore structural design using model analysis’. The following report on the proceedings has been prepared by Mr John Clarke of the Cement & Concrete Association. Details of the Institution’s Study Groups, with names and addresses of Conveners, were published in The Structural Engineer, June 1983, p197 The aim of the half-day colloquium was to illustrate the ways in which the use of models plays a significant role in the design of a major structure. The oil production platforms in the North Sea have required design expertise from many different disciplines. The colloquium covered the use of models in the design, fabrication and installation of a major steel jacket platform for the BP Magnus field, described by members of the John Brown - Earl & Wright design team.
