7.2. Reliability Analysis of Steel Configurations for Ice Offshore
China’s Bohai Sea is located in ice where it is more important for the glacial configuration to withstand pressure from the sea ice than from waves; thus, an offshore oil and steel configuration needs to have a safety and reliability analysis. It is more complex to do a steel configuration strength and load analysis for the ice than one for room temperature; so take it as a typical reliability analysis. Therefore, it is necessary to analyze the reliability of the configuration.
7.2.1. Strength and Probability Characteristics for a Steel Configuration at a Low Temperature
Some parts of a steel configuration in offshore ice are often in the water at a tidal range in contact with a ...
