Long-term structural response methodologies
Task 3.1 Integrated design tools
Implement results from WP1 and WP2 into engineering design tool (e.g. SIMA).
Task 3.2 Fatigue analysis
Evaluate the influence of different models for geotechnical, hydro- and aerodynamic excitation and damping on fatigue response. Investigate the effect of soil hysteresis and local wind and wave conditions on fatigue response.
Task 3.3 Extreme value analysis
Integrated long-term analysis and evaluation of the applicability of modified contour methods, accounting for duration of analysis, discretization of metocean data and transient effects from shutdown and fault conditions. Evaluate embedded design wave approach compared to fully non-linear irregular wave analysis (3 hr). Evaluate the sensitivity to soil-structure interaction models.
Task 3.4 Validation
Validate response analysis against experimental data obtained in WP4.
