Learning objectives

Knowledge

Students who complete the module:

  • Must have knowledge about design rules for offshore structures including methods for deterministic and probabilistic assessment of loads on offshore structures.
  • Must have knowledge about analytical, numerical and experimental methods for investigation of offshore structures including installation and anchoring.

Skills

Students who complete the module:

  • Must be able to perform an offshore site assessment and a design basis.
  • Must be able to apply advanced numerical and experimental methods for analysis and assessment of loads and the corresponding structural response.
  • Must be able to compare and evaluate limitations and uncertainties related to simple and advanced methods for estimation of environmental load as well the bearing capacity and deformations of the support structure. 
  • Must be able to evaluate the safety by application of probabilistic methods for assessment of loads and bearing capacity of offshore structures.

Competences

Students who complete the module:

  • Must be able to apply proper terminology in oral, written and graphical communication and documentation of problems and solutions within offshore structures.
