Wind and Wave Load Analysis

In response to the challenges of building structures in more inhospitable marine environments and under closer regulatory scrutiny, the offshore oil industry is moving towards more rational probability-based procedures for setting design levels. These procedures require the calculation of the probabilities associated with very severe storms. For the past sixteen years, Risk Engineering has led joint-industry projects, funded by several oil companies and research organizations, for the development of probabilistic models for the characterization of these extreme storms. We are developing models for tropical and extra-tropical environments in several regions of the world.
