Since it was first issued inthe working stress code RP2A Ref 2 has become an internationally 2s standard for fixed platforms. 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 api rp 2a lrfd analyses.


A Comparative Study Using API RP2A-LRFD – OnePetro

Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ The issue of a load resistance factor design version reflects the worldwide trend away from working api rp 2a lrfd design to reliability based methods. The work is confined to the in-place strength of spi jacket and module support frame MSF. As a reliability based alternative, the load resistance factor design LRFD api rp 2a lrfd offers a more consistent approach to platform safety than does the existing RP2A working stress design WSD method.

Although fundamental differences exist between the WSD and LRFD versions, the two documents remain remarkably similar with lrvd LRFD draft containing most of the carefully phrased clauses which are familiar to many practicing engineers.

Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Peer reviewed only Published between: LRFD however, is an improved approach to structural design which takes into account the possible uncertainties in the applied api rp 2a lrfd and component resistances. 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. This is achieved by providing a basic framework api rp 2a lrfd design, accompanied by guidance on problem areas a2 outside this framework.
