The study is based on work performed for Woodside as part of the substructure design for the Goodwyn ‘A’ Platform. 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.

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.

A Comparative Study Using API RP2A-LRFD – OnePetro

Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. This is achieved by providing a basic framework for design, accompanied by guidance on problem areas lying outside this framework.

Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ The work is confined to the in-place strength of the jacket and module support frame MSF. 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.

LRFD however, is an improved approach to structural design which takes into account the possible uncertainties in the applied loads and component resistances. Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: As a reliability based alternative, the load resistance factor design LRFD method offers a more consistent approach to ltfd safety than does the existing RP2A working stress design WSD method.

Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. Peer reviewed only Published between: 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.

Since it was first issued inthe working stress code RP2A Ref 2 has become an internationally accepted standard for fixed platforms. Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology:
