Marine Platform Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I've been asked to design steel framing for a marine platform.  The
framing is basically steel frame space truss (angles) on top of floats. 
It is 48 ft. x 42 ft. in plan.  I would like to find out design
guidelines for loading on the framing.  I was wondering about wave
action.  If this is located in a bay I envision waves rising and lowering
sections of the platform.  Are there any design guidelines for wave
action loading of a platform like this?  I looked through some NAVFAC
sites but didn't see anything specific.

Thanks.

Rich
