Course Information

This course is intended to provide the fundamental principles and practices for the design and construction of offshore structures. Because of the multidisciplinary nature of the problems involved, the content provides a solid foundation of fundamental principles of structures, fluid and geomechanics, applied to offshore systems design and construction. At the end of each section, the theory covered in the course is explained by means of worked examples and tutorials. The main codes of practice, including API and DNV, are finally introduced and explained by means of worked examples and case studies.

This intensive course is of benefit to design engineers, contractors, project engineers, logistic managers, insurers, safety officers, working in the offshore industry, who wish to enhance their understanding of the fundamental principles of design and construction of offshore structures and their implications on the design practice.
