This is achieved by providing a basic framework for design, accompanied by guidance on problem areas lying outside this framework.
LRFD however, is an improved approach to structural design which takes into account the possible uncertainties in the applied loads and component resistances. The effect on total structure weight and the differing effect on various categories of structural element are summarised.

A Comparative Study Using API RP2A-LRFD – OnePetro
Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. Although fundamental differences exist between the WSD and LRFD versions, the two documents remain remarkably similar with the LRFD draft containing most of the carefully phrased clauses which are familiar to many practicing engineers. Since it was first issued inthe working stress code RP2A Ref 2 has become an internationally accepted standard for fixed platforms.
Peer reviewed only Published between: Peer reviewed only Published between: Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: But with the introduction of the LRFD methodology it has become possible to rationally account for the variance between US regional conditions and other localities.
Partial factors are used to account explicitly for the variance of lgfd, and can therefore be calibrated to provide more consistent safety levels. Log in to your subscription Username. These aspects assume increasing importance as element design is further refined.
The reliability of the Goodwyn ‘A’ substructure has been a major focus of the design and results are presented showing the platform reserve capacity, computed using non-linear inelastic ductility analyses.
As a reliability based alternative, the load resistance factor design LRFD method offers a more consistent approach to platform safety than does the existing RP2A working stress design WSD method.

Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: The WSD methodology has been successfully applied largely without change within Europe and worldwide. Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. To conclude, this paper makes the connection between the work reported here and the international effort to develop an ISO Standard for offshore structures, in which partial factors appropriate to regional conditions will feature.
Application of API RP2A-LRFD to a North Sea Platform Structure – OnePetro
Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ The issue of a load resistance factor design version reflects the worldwide trend away from working stress design to reliability based methods.
Advanced search Show search help. Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: The designation ‘load resistance factor design’ derives from the concept of factoring both loads and resistances as opposed to the working stress design approach where only the resistance is divided by a factor of safety.
This paper also discusses the different partial load factors applicable to gravity loads when improved accuracy of weight control is effected, and applicable to environmental load when yearor year return period extreme environmental criteria are used in the North Sea.

Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. The study is based on work performed for Woodside as part of the substructure design for the Goodwyn ‘A’ Platform. This paper does not discuss the very important but less quantifiable concepts of structural redundancy and the ability to redistribute loads from non-performing structural elements. However is expected to see the publication of the Load and Resistance Factor Design version as an AP1-approved alternative.
