Abstract

Offshore structures are subjected to the action of wind, wave, sea storms, and earthquakes, and transmit dynamic loads to the underlying soils. This paper highlights the role of soil dynamics in the design of foundations for offshore structures. The motion characteristics associated with storm waves and earthquake loading are discussed. The necessity to consider earthquake load in addition to the environmental loads depending on the location of the offshore structure is discussed. The paper also presents the results of dynamic test on a single pile and a comparison of the observed and predicted response of the Pile.

Soil Dynamics in the Offshore

St. Louis, Missouri

Offshore structures are subjected to the action of wind, wave, sea storms, and earthquakes, and transmit dynamic loads to the underlying soils. This paper highlights the role of soil dynamics in the design of foundations for offshore structures. The motion characteristics associated with storm waves and earthquake loading are discussed. The necessity to consider earthquake load in addition to the environmental loads depending on the location of the offshore structure is discussed. The paper also presents the results of dynamic test on a single pile and a comparison of the observed and predicted response of the Pile.
