Proceedings of an International Api rp2a lrfd Submersible Technology: Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. Offshore Technology Api rp2a lrfd Disciplines 4. The study is based on work performed for Woodside as part of the substructure design for the Goodwyn ‘A’ Platform.

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.


The work is confined to the in-place strength of the jacket and module support frame MSF. As a reliability based alternative, the load resistance factor design LRFD method offers a more consistent approach to platform safety than api rp2a lrfd the existing RP2A working stress design WSD method.

Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Ap Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. 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.

A Comparative Study Using API RP2A-LRFD – OnePetro

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 api rp2a lrfd a factor of safety. Some of the OnePetro partner societies have developed subject- specific wikis that may help.

Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Since it was first issued inthe working api rp2a lrfd code RP2A Ref 2 has become an internationally accepted standard for fixed platforms. The issue of a load lrfx factor design version reflects the worldwide trend away from working stress design to reliability based methods. Rock Mechanics Api rp2a lrfd and 5th U.

LRFD however, is an improved approach to structural design which takes into account the possible uncertainties in the applied loads and api rp2a lrfd resistances. Log in to your subscription Username.
