Scope:

Objectives of this Document

The primary objective of this document is to provide a sample application of the Section 17 guidelines in determining the lateral and overturning static ultimate strength of a steel jacket platform in an extreme storm or hurricane event. The documented results will provide an "acceptable" basis to verify analysis procedures, models, and results of analyses performed on other platforms.

The following information is provided in this document:

• Platform and geotechnical data

• Metocean data

• Modeling assumptions

• Load analysis results

• Capacity analysis results

• Variabilities in the loading and capacity estimates provided by Benchmark JIP participants

The capacity analysis results are provided for two cases: (1) with complete soil-structure interaction included; and (2) with fixity at the pilehead to exclude the effect of soil-structure interaction.

The range of the JIP results highlight the variations to be expected in the estimate values when different criterias, modeling techniques, analysis procedures and software are applied.
