API RP 2A - Planning Designing, and Constructing Fixed Offshore Platforms - Working Stress Design

2014

This recommended practice is based on global industry best practices and serves as a guide for those who are concerned with the design and construction of new fixed offshore platforms and for the relocation of existing platforms used for the drilling, development, production, and storage of hydrocarbons in offshore areas. This publication serves as a guide for the design and construction of new platforms and for the relocation of existing platforms used for the drilling, development, and storage of hydrocarbons in offshore areas. In addition, these guidelines shall be used in conjunction with API 2SIM for the assessment of existing platforms in the event that it becomes necessary to make a determination of the fitness-for-purpose of the structure. Reference in this document is made to the 1989 edition of the AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings—Allowable Stress Design and Plastic Design. The use of later editions of AISC specifications is specifically not recommended for design of offshore platforms. The load and resistance factors in these specifications are based on calibration with building design practices and may not be applicable to offshore platforms. Research work is now in progress to incorporate the strength provisions of the new AISC code into API offshore design practices.

BS EN ISO 19901-1 - Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries - Specific Requirements For Offshore Structures - Part 1 - Metocean Design and OPerating Considarations

2015

ISO 19901-1:2015 gives general requirements for the determination and use of meteorological and oceanographic (metocean) conditions for the design, construction and operation of offshore structures of all types used in the petroleum and natural gas industries. The requirements are divided into two broad types:
- those that relate to the determination of environmental conditions in general, together with the metocean parameters that are required to adequately describe them;
- those that relate to the characterization and use of metocean parameters for the design, the construction activities or the operation of offshore structures.
The environmental conditions and metocean parameters discussed are:
- extreme and abnormal values of metocean parameters that recur with given return periods that are considerably longer than the design service life of the structure,
- long-term distributions of metocean parameters, in the form of cumulative, conditional, marginal or joint statistics of metocean parameters, and
- normal environmental conditions that are expected to occur frequently during the design service life of the structure.
Metocean parameters are applicable to:
- the determination of actions for the design of new structures,
- the determination of actions for the assessment of existing structures,
- the site-specific assessment of mobile offshore units,
- the determination of limiting environmental conditions, weather windows, actions and action effects for pre-service and post-service situations (i.e. fabrication, transportation and installation or decommissioning and removal of a structure), and
- the operation of the platform, where appropriate.

BS EN ISO 19901-2 - Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries - Specific Requirements For Offshore Structures - Part  2 - Seismic Design Procedures and Criteria

2017

ISO 19901-2:2017 contains requirements for defining the seismic design procedures and criteria for offshore structures; guidance on the requirements is included in Annex A. The requirements focus on fixed steel offshore structures and fixed concrete offshore structures. The effects of seismic events on floating structures and partially buoyant structures are briefly discussed. The site-specific assessment of jack-ups in elevated condition is only covered in ISO 19901-2:2017 to the extent that the requirements are applicable.
Only earthquake-induced ground motions are addressed in detail. Other geologically induced hazards such as liquefaction, slope instability, faults, tsunamis, mud volcanoes and shock waves are mentioned and briefly discussed.
The requirements are intended to reduce risks to persons, the environment, and assets to the lowest levels that are reasonably practicable. This intent is achieved by using:
a) seismic design procedures which are dependent on the exposure level of the offshore structure and the expected intensity of seismic events;
b) a two-level seismic design check in which the structure is designed to the ultimate limit state (ULS) for strength and stiffness and then checked to abnormal environmental events or the abnormal limit state (ALS) to ensure that it meets reserve strength and energy dissipation requirements.
Procedures and requirements for a site-specific probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA) are addressed for offshore structures in high seismic areas and/or with high exposure levels. However, a thorough explanation of PSHA procedures is not included.
Where a simplified design approach is allowed, worldwide offshore maps, which are included in Annex B, show the intensity of ground shaking corresponding to a return period of 1 000 years. In such cases, these maps may be used with corresponding scale factors to determine appropriate seismic actions for the design of a structure.
For design of fixed steel offshore structures, further specific requirements and recommended values of design parameters (e.g. partial action and resistance factors) are included in ISO 19902, while those for fixed concrete offshore structures are contained in ISO 19903. Seismic requirements for floating structures are contained in ISO 19904, for site-specific assessment of jack-ups and other MOUs in ISO 19905 (all parts), for arctic structures in ISO 19906 and for topsides structures in ISO 19901‑3.

It complements ISO 19902, ISO 19903, ISO 19904-1, ISO 19905-1 and ISO 19906, which give requirements for various forms of support structure. Requirements in this part of ISO 19901 concerning modifications and maintenance relate only to those aspects that are of direct relevance to the structural integrity of the topsides structure. ISO 19901-3:2014 is applicable to the topsides of offshore structures for the petroleum and natural gas industries, as follows: •topsides of fixed offshore structures; •discrete structural units placed on the hull structures of floating offshore structures and mobile offshore units; •certain aspects of the topsides of arctic structures. ISO 19901-3:2014 contains requirements for, and guidance and information on, the following aspects of topsides structures: •design, fabrication, installation and modification; •in-service inspection and structural integrity management; •assessment of existing topsides structures; •reuse; •decommissioning, removal and disposal; •prevention, control and assessment of fire, explosions and other accidental events. ISO 19901-3:2014 applies to structural components including the following: •primary and secondary structure in decks, module support frames and modules; •flare structures; •crane pedestal and other crane support arrangements; •helicopter landing decks (helidecks); •permanent bridges between separate offshore structures; •masts, towers and booms on offshore structures.

BS EN ISO 19901-4 - Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries - Specific Requirements For Offshore Structures - Part 4 - Geotechnical and Foundation Design Consideration

2016

EN ISO 19901-4 Petroleum and natural gas industries - Specific requirements for offshore structures - Part 4: Geotechnical and foundation design considerations - ISO 19901-4:2016 contains provisions for those aspects of geoscience and foundation engineering that are applicable to a broad range of offshore structures, rather than to a particular structure type. Such aspects are: - site and soil characterization; - identification of hazards; - design and installation of shallow foundations supported by the seabed; - design and installation of pile foundations; - soil-structure interaction for auxiliary structures, e.g. subsea production systems, risers and flowlines (guidance given in A.10); - design of anchors for the stationkeeping systems of floating structures (guidance given in A.11). Particular requirements for marine soil investigations are detailed in ISO 19901-8. Aspects of soil mechanics and foundation engineering that apply equally to offshore and onshore structures are not addressed. The user of this part of ISO 19901 is expected to be familiar with such aspects. ISO 19901-4 outlines methods developed primarily for the design of shallow foundations with an embedded length (L) to diameter (D) ratio L/D < 1 (Clause 7) and relatively long and flexible pile foundations with L/D > 10 (Clause 8). This part of ISO 19901 does not apply to intermediate foundations with 1 < L/D < 10. Such intermediate foundations, often known as 'caisson foundations', comprise either shallow foundations with skirts penetrating deeper into the seabed than the width of the foundation, or shorter, more rigid and larger diameter piles than those traditionally used for founding offshore structures. The design of such foundations can require specific analysis methods; it is important that any extrapolation from the design methods described in this part of ISO 19901 to intermediate foundations be treated with care and assessed by a geotechnical specialist.

It addresses the following topics: the basis of design in the Eurocodes framework; the loads applied to building structures; the load combinations for the various limit states of design and the main steel properties and steel fabrication methods; the models and methods of structural analysis in combination with the structural imperfections and the cross-section classification according to compactness; the cross-section resistances when subjected to axial and shear forces, bending or torsional moments and to combinations of the above; component design and more specifically the design of components sensitive to instability phenomena, such as flexural, torsional and lateral-torsional buckling (a section is devoted to composite beams); the design of connections and joints executed by bolting or welding, including beam to column connections in frame structures; and alternative configurations to be considered during the conceptual design phase for various types of single or multi-storey buildings, and the design of crane supporting beams. In addition, the fabrication and erection procedures, as well as the related quality requirements and the quality control methods are extensively discussed (including the procedures for bolting, welding and surface protection). The book is supplemented by more than fifty numerical examples that explain in detail the appropriate procedures to deal with each particular problem in the design of steel structures in accordance with Eurocodes. The book is an ideal learning resource for students of structural engineering, as well as a valuable reference for practicing engineers who perform designs on basis of Eurocodes.

Structural design is grossly abbreviated name of an operation, which for major projects  may involve the knowledge of hundreds of experts from a variety of disciplines. A code  of practice may therefore be regarded as a consensus of what is considered acceptable at  the  time  it  was  written,  containing  a  balance  between  accepted  practice  and  recent  research presented in such a way that the information should be of immediate use to the  design  engineer.  As  such,  it  is  regarded  more  as  an  aid  to  design,  which  includes  allowable  stress  levels, member  capacities,  design  formulae  and  recommendations  for  good practice, rather than a manual or textbook on design.

Light Gauge Metal Structure Recent Advances

N/A

The aim of this book is to review recent research and technical advances, including the progress in design codes, related to the engineering applications of light gauge metal sections made in carbon, high strength and stainless steel, as well as aluminium alloys. Included is a review of the new technologies for connections of light gauge metal members. Main advanced applications, for residential, non residential and industrial buildings and pallet rack systems are also covered. For the first time, this book takes into account all the metallic materials now used more and more for structural components. The book will be of great interest not only for researchers but also for design engineers faced to the use of new metallic materials in modern structural applications.

Structural Steel Design to Eurocode 3 and AISC Specifications

2016

Structural Steel Design to Eurocode 3 and AISC Specifications deals with the theory and practical applications of structural steel design in Europe and the USA. The book covers appropriate theoretical and background information, followed by a more design‐oriented coverage focusing on European and United States specifications and practices, allowing the reader to directly compare the approaches and results of both codes. Chapters follow a general plan, covering: • A general section covering the relevant topics for the chapter, based on classical theory and recent research developments • A detailed section covering design and detailing to Eurocode 3 specification • A detailed section covering design and detailing to AISC specifications Fully worked examples are using both codes are presented. With construction companies working in increasingly international environments, engineers are more and more likely to encounter both codes. Written for design engineers and students of civil and structural engineering, this book will help both groups to become conversant with both code systems.

Typical Weelding Procedure Specifications for Structure Steelwork

1988

Scope This document is intended for use by steelwork contractors, welding engineers and inspectors, and those actively involved in welding and welding technology. Familiarity with BS EN ISO 15614, BS EN 287, and the welding principles contained in BS EN 1011 is required. Structural capacity checking and weld inspection are not addressed in this document. This document contains 14 preliminary Welding Procedure Specifications (pWPS) written in accordance with the requirements of BS EN ISO 15609-1. They cover the welding of plate and rolled sections up to 25mm thick in carbon manganese structural steels to BS EN 10025, with a maximum carbon equivalent value (CEV) of 0.45 (1) (see BS EN 1011-2 Clause C.2.1). The maximum combined thickness is limited to 75mm. The welding process is solid wire partly mechanised Metal-arc Active Gas (MAG), process 135 in BS EN ISO 4063. It is assumed that preparation, control and use of a suitable consumable will achieve a hydrogen content of 5ml/100g or below in the deposited weld metal i.e. Scale D in BS EN 1011-2, Table C.2. In order to achieve the required hydrogen content, the steelwork contractor should ensure that consumables are stored and used in accordance with manufacturers' recommendations - i.e. they should be kept clean, dry and free from contamination. The welding parameters proposed in the pWPS are designed to produce welds which meet the mechanical requirements of BS EN 10025 steel grades up to and including S355J2; with a minimum Charpy impact value of 27J at -20°C.
