Offshore Compliant Platforms: Analysis, Design, and Experimental Studies
4. Triceratops Under Special Loads
Download citation file:
This chapter describes the response of a triceratops platform to continuous ice crushing for an uncoupled dynamic analysis of offshore structures. It also includes the detailed response of an offshore triceratops to continuous ice crushing and a tether analysis given different sea ice conditions. This chapter also presents a response analysis for a triceratops under an impact load arising due to ship–platform collisions. The behavior of the deck plates in the presence of a hydrocarbon fire is also presented.
