Structural Design of Offshore Ships
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
Scope and applications
This standard is applicable to hull and topside of ship-shaped offshore units, such as drilling units and floating production/storage units, constructed in steel for both non-restricted and restricted operations.
This standard covers the following structural items:
- material selection and fabrication principles
- design principles
- design loads
- ultimate strength requirements
- fatigue requirements
- specify procedures and requirements for units subject to DNV classification services.
Serviceability (SLS) condition is not covered in this standard.
The hull girder longitudinal strength principles are based on site specific environmental loads.
For application of this standard as technical basis for classification see Ch.3.
Flag and shelf state requirements are not covered by this standard.
