Thomas BP Engineering R. Its use in Europe is supplemented by additional local regulatory requirements and performance criteria but the designmethodology, basic code checking equation sand safety levels for ultimate strength are primarily related to API RP2A.

The work is confined to the in-place strength of the jacket and module support frame MSF. The issue of a load resistance factor design version reflects the worldwide trend away from working stress design to reliability based methods.
Since it lrfe first issued inthe working stress code RP2A Ref 2 has r2pa an internationally accepted standard for fixed platforms. Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. To conclude, this paper makes the connection between the work reported here and the international effort to develop an ISO Standard for offshore structures, in which partial factors appropriate to regional conditions will feature.
Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: LRFD however, is an improved approach to structural design which takes into account the possible uncertainties in the applied loads and component resistances. This is achieved by providing a basic framework for design, accompanied by guidance on problem areas lrrd outside this framework.

The designation ‘load resistance factor design’ derives from the concept of factoring both loads and resistances as opposed to the working stress design approach where only the resistance is divided by a factor of safety. Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. Partial factors are used to account explicitly for the variance of criteria, and can therefore be calibrated to provide more consistent safety levels.
Although fundamental differences exist between the WSD and LRFD versions, the two documents remain remarkably similar with the LRFD draft containing most of the carefully phrased clauses which are familiar to many practicing engineers. Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Publishers Content Coverage Privacy.
The WSD methodology has been successfully applied largely without change within Europe and worldwide. Advanced search Show search help. Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. This paper also discusses the different partial load factors applicable to gravity loads when improved accuracy of weight control is effected, and applicable to environmental load when yearor year return period extreme environmental criteria are used in the North Sea.

These aspects assume increasing importance as element design is further refined. Rp2x effect on total structure weight and the differing effect on various categories of structural element are summarised.
The study is based on work performed for Woodside as part of the substructure design for the Goodwyn ‘A’ Platform. But with the introduction of the LRFD methodology it has become possible to rationally account for the variance between US regional conditions and other localities.

This paper does not discuss the very important but less quantifiable concepts of structural redundancy and the ability to redistribute loads from non-performing structural elements. Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘
