Ship-Jacket Impact Analysis

A Ship-jacket platform collision analysis is used to assess the consequences of impact to an offshore platform to assess the:

  • Structural damage to the platform or vessel
  • Collision energy loss mechanisms
  • Collision forces time-history

Both Jacket and ship model are built in FE software and dynamic analysis method is used to achieve solution convergence. The results of the collision analysis in terms of damage to the platform is then reported using contour plots.
