This course provides a broad knowledge of the technology and work processes used for the structural design of offshore systems.
The course is designed in such a way that participants will have a better grip of the behaviour of offshore structures under a variety of loads and operating conditions.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Understand and apply key design and construction codes and standards related to structural engineering in general and offshore structures design in particular.
- Identify the key evaluations to be considered in field development
- Recognize the types & functional requirements of offshore structures
- Identify design requirements for offshore structures
- Describe the impact of topside facilities on structural design.
- Recognize and manage key design and operational interfaces between the major components of offshore facilities systems.
- Understand the role of structural engineers and their relationship with other disciplines.
