Conference paper


The analysis and design of offshore structures is a complex complicated process. It is an iterative process involving several underlying assumptions, approximations and uncertainties which remain unresolved. The structures have to withstand an environment that can be predicted only with great uncertainties and must rest on soils whose properties and behaviour vary randomly and are known only to an approximate degree of accuracy. Therefore, the design of an offshore structure not only requires a thorough understanding of the principles of mechanics but also the expert human knowledge acquired from many years of experience.
