NEW BOOK COMING SOON :):)
The field of offshore structural reliability continues to advance assessment and analysis. It is an area that requires expertise from a combination of fundamental structural knowledge and statistical approach. With these two specialities, then any uncertainty can be resolved. This book offers a comprehensive introduction, literature, methods to example calculation to get reliable results for a fixed offshore structure. The field of offshore structural reliability is focused on ageing structural platforms (asset/facility). In Malaysia, there are more than 300 ageing structural platforms in the peninsula’s eastern waters and the coasts of Sarawak and Sabah.
Readers will be able to learn the fundamentals, theories, and literature related to offshore structural. The assessment uses quantified risk assessment (QRA) methods that meet the criteria of code and standards. How the development of methods and approaches in structural reliability assessment can give an impact on the oil and gas industry. The beginning to find out how offshore structural reliability is for readers to understand the concept of risk-based, namely risk-based design, risk-based inspection, and risk-centred maintenance. Extended to the meaning of the definition and method of advance analysis, i.e., reserve strength ratio (RSR), the concept of non-linear plastic collapse includes the type of failure for each fixed offshore structural. An understanding of the theoretical foundations of the probability of failure (POF) approach is also included in this book.
Examples of actual case studies are shown in this book where the reader can learn reliable methods for calculating POF through integral theory and interference. In addition, a reliable method is shown to determine the value of the load coefficient for determining the limit level of wave in-deck. End with readers finding out how to incorporate wave in-deck load when performing advanced non-linear analysis.
