This course is a must for professionals seeking an understanding of the design and construction of floating platforms. Taught through a combination of lectures and group discussions, you will gain a complete understanding of the fundamental design process and modern design practices in this field. Design principles applied to ensure functionality and safety, tension leg platforms, and the motions, loads, and structural behavior characterizing floating platforms are emphasized. In addition, the theory and current practical engineering methods in relation to the design and construction of floating platforms will be covered. The final result is real-world knowledge of the complete design process that you can begin applying immediately in the workplace.
Offshore Structures Short Courses are sponsored by the Offshore Technology Research Center, The University of Texas at Austin, and Texas A&M University
