SummaryThis course complements the hydrodynamics and fluid structure interaction material developed in the ┐Hydrodynamics of Offshore Renewable Energy Devices┐ course, now focussing on advanced approaches to structural response and risk-based design.
Course description Global and local structural load prediction models;
basic concepts to derive the ultimate strength formulations,post-ultimate behaviour;
average stress-strain relationship;
post-buckling and ultimate strength behaviour of stiffened panels, ultimate strength of plate assemblies, global ultimate strength;
closed-form ultimate strength design formulations;
introduction to reliability based strength analysis;
partial safety factors;
reliability indices;
case studies to predict the structural loading and strength analysis of various fixed and floating offshore renewable energy devices.
