Description

The objective was to conduct parametric studies of the dynamic response of reduced degrees of freedom nonlinear systems and determine how the results from simplified nonlinear capacity analysis relate to the results from complex time-domain analysis of the performance of platforms in extreme condition storms. Observed platform performance during recent hurricanes (e.g. Andrew, Camille, Betsy, Hilda) were used to verify the analysis. Engineering guidelines were developed to define dynamic nonlinear loading-capacity effects on the overall performance characteristics of platforms.
