Abstract

This research paper summarizes the study of the requirements and basic theoretical foundation for the development of structural design of fixed platform type Jacket, resulting in the proposal for a analysis model for this type of offshore structure. Aspects related with cinematics evaluation, selecting of wave theory and hydrodynamic proper formula are also considered in the calculation of acting forces and the need for local metocean data in the analysis. A case study of application of the model for a new type structure jacket RC-5 Block of the Colombian Caribbean is also presented including its geometry proposed and some results of the numerical model procedures.
