Offshore Structure Platform Design Using SACS Software Course

Course Description

This course offering will review the fundamentals behind all types of offshore structures (fixed or floating) and, in the case of fixed platforms, will cover applications of these principles.

Course Objective

The overall objective is to provide participants with an understanding of the design and construction of offshore platforms, specifically

  • The theory and process of such design
  • The use of current, applicable engineering methods in the design of fixed offshore platforms. In addition to the traditional lecture delivery, the course delivery emphasizes the use of group discussions and actual design problems in order to ensure participants can put the newly learned concepts to use.
