Comparative analysis of tripod offshore structure

Abstract

Marine structures are nowadays used in a variety of ways. The analysis of a tripod-type offshore structure sixty m in total height is performed in this study. In addition to operation-related loads, the structure is also under the effect of wind and wave loads. While the Eurocode velocity profile is used to calculate wind forces, the Airy wave velocity profile is utilized to determine wave forces. The model is created by a finite elements analysis program, and is composed of fluid and structural parts. The interaction of the parts is ensured by Coupled Eulerian Lagrangian (CEL) technique.

Keywords
offshore structures, fluid-structure interaction, finite element analysis, Coupled Eulerian Lagrangian technique
