Development of stochastic quadratization for nonlinear systems with application to compliant offshore structures
The exploration and production of oil at offshore locations is extending into ever increasing water depths. To exploit this resource in water depths in excess of 300 meters, a new class of offshore structures called compliant ...
Cognac platform: Correlation of analytical predictions with field measurements of dynamic response
Utilizing simplified structural and hydrodynamic models, a parametric study is performed comparing response predictions for the Cognac deepwater platform as it is subjected to wave-and-current forces. Comparisons for the ...
Filter approaches to stochastic dynamic analysis of compliant offshore platforms
The dynamics of offshore structures subjected to random waves is investigated. The load modeling and response analysis are conducted by using a new approach. The problems of the wave kinematics simulation and of the dynamic ...
An experimental parametric study of stochastic fatigue
Fatigue damage due to random stress histories is typically estimated by either Rainflow range counting (a time history approach), or by the Rayleigh approximation (a power spectral density approach). These methods are not ...
A priori error estimates of finite element models of systems of shallow water equations
In recent years, there has been much interest in the numerical solution of shallow water equations. The numerical procedure used to solve the shallow water equations must resolve the physics of the problem without introducing ...
