Aims

A1. To introduce the basic design concepts for fixed and floating offshore oil and gas platforms
A2. To provide fundamental knowledge to understand key factors influencing the dynamic behaviour of fixed and floating offshore platforms and installations
A3. To develop computational skills to predict the dynamic motion and structural response of fixed and floating offshore platforms

Outline Of Syllabus

Wave theories; wave, wind and current force predictions; single and multi-degree of freedom systems; rigid-body equations of single and multi-body systems; wave induced vibrations; dynamic analysis of semi-submersibles, and fixed-foundation structures such as monopiles

Teaching Methods

Please note that module leaders are reviewing the module teaching and assessment methods for Semester 2 modules, in light of the Covid-19 restrictions. There may also be a few further changes to Semester 1 modules. Final information will be available by the end of August 2020 in for Semester 1 modules and the end of October 2020 for Semester 2 modules.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship

Lectures are designed to convey the underlying fundamental and technical knowledge for the dynamics of offshore installations (IKO1 - IKO4) and the analysis skills required during the tutorials to predict structural response subject to environmental loading (IS01 - IS04)


Alternative will be offered to students who are unable to be present in person.

Students should consult their individual timetable for up-to-date delivery information.
