85% of delegates said that All or Most of their expectations were met!

Here's what they had to say:

"Course length was great, allowing enough time for each topic to be covered in depth. All lecturers were excellent and I found their course notes very useful for the project I am currently involved in."

"Even though I have many years of experience in the industry, I still found the course a very useful refresher."

"I particularly liked the interactiveness and use of examples. Overall, a well-delivered and informative course that helped to consolidate my knowledge and understanding."

About the Course

The primary objective of this short course is to provide an in-depth understanding of the structural response of offshore structures based on both component and system. This will be useful to engineering graduates and experienced draughtsmen who hold active line responsibilities in the design of offshore structures and offshore systems. The course is designed in such a way that at the end of the lectures, the person will have a very broad understanding of the behaviour of offshore structures under a variety of loading and operating conditions.

The course will aim to teach structural modelling of fixed platforms, which includes calculation of hydrodynamic loading through Morison’s equation. The modelling of the fixed platforms as a 3D structural models, using beam elements will be taught. The response of the structure will be checked using codified rules in order to check the compliance of the structure. First principle design and analysis of beams, beam column, unstiffened and stiffened plates will be taught. Finally, the analysis and design of stiffened shells, which form a major structural component of many offshore structures such as Jacket platforms, compliant towers will be outlined, including structural reliability analysis of their shell structures.The syllabus will include: hydrodynamics of both fixed and floating offshore structures and structural modelling and response of these types of structures.

The course is intended for practising engineers and research scientists who need to understand the concepts behind the behaviour of offshore structure and system at sea.

Who should attend?

Engineers and scientists involved in the design of offshore structures. Personnel from oil companies, classification societies and offshore structure builders will benefits from attending this course. The course is innovative in both content & structure with a careful balance of theory & practice.
