Development and implementation of code check methodology for plated steel structure

Abstract

A codecheck methodology, suitable for checking the behaviour of stiffened steel plate structures, is proposed in this paper. The methodology adopts the most appropriate, complementary aspects of existing codes, supplemented by pertinent recent research. A case history of the Beryl Alpha platform is presented. This demonstrates the benefit of applying the methodology to the post processing of a finite element analysis of the deck. With minimal, but effective stiffening, an overall 17% increase in deck load is now carried. The additional capacity was used for safety enhancements and improvements necessary to extend the platform's economic life.
