As the offshore wind industry moves toward deeper water, with larger turbines and correspondingly larger monopile foundations, nonlinear loads from steep waves may become more important for the ULS design. Nonlinear numerical wave tanks (NWTs) for generating wave kinematics, to be used as input to i...

Design approaches for wave impact on marine structures in storm sea-states are being reconsidered due to events related to the safety of North Sea offshore structures, both fixed and floating (Valhall QP extended lifetime; COSL Innovator accident). There has been a strong research and tool developme...

When designing a new floating unit concept, static stability computations are performed in order to check stability criteria defined in regulations. Calculations for design conditions generally include the estimation of buoyancy force, gravity force and wind force acting on the floater for a given c...

The paper is concerned with the launch of free-fall lifeboats (FFL). It proposes a method that complies with the DNV-OS-E406 standard in order to select characteristic launches from Monte Carlo simulations for further structural load assessment with CFD and FEM. Proxy variables derived from kinemati...

The paper addresses the structural integrity assessment of lifeboat launched from floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels. The study is based on long-term drop lifeboat simulations accounting for more than 50 years of hindcast data of metocean conditions and corresponding FPSO mot...

The evacuation of personnel from an offshore installation in severe weather conditions is generally ensured by free-fall lifeboats. During the water entry phase of the launch, the lifeboat may be subject to large acceleration loads that may cause harmful acceleration-induced loads on the occupants. ...
