Abstract

During the assessment for a jack-up unit to operate at a particular location it is usual practice to assess the ability of the unit to withstand the site specific 50 year return storm conditions.
The assessment procedure essentially comprises analyses to evaluate:
(1) The structural integrity of the unit.
(2) The potential for overturning.
(3) The integrity of the foundations.
Probably the least understood and studied part of jack-up behaviour is that of the foundations under storm conditions.
