Design of Offshore Structures using STAAD.Pro and STAAD.Offshore

Reading time: 1 minute

STAAD.Pro is a general purpose structural analysis and design tool that is being used to design offshore structures. STAAD.Offshore allows users create wave loading and transport loads on offshore structures. It can handle pipes, rectangular/square tubes, and open sections such as Ibeams and channels, or other structural shapes by judicious selection of the wave force coefficients. A typical scenario is an offshore jacket structure as shown in Figure. The offshore jacket can be subjected to many types of loads including wave loads and several transport ship motions.

STAAD.Offshore provides the user with options to generate wave loads using eight different wave generation theories. The height of the wave and period of the waves have to be provided in STAAD.Offshore.
