Ship and Offshore Structures

This programme was developed following an increase in demand for design engineers who can design and assess new ships and offshore structures. It is designed for graduate engineers or those from related disciplines who will be introduced to ultimate strength, fatigue and design concepts for structural components of ships and offshore floating systems. The programme will provide students with knowledge of material behaviour together with factors influencing the dynamic behaviour of offshore installations.

Course modules

Modules: Risers and mooring lines; dynamics of floating offshore installations; reliability-based marine structural design including plated structures; finite element analysis of floating structures; advanced marine structures; computational modelling of problems in structural mechanics; materials engineering.

Assessment methods

There are two types of method for module assessment. One is course work assessment only, the other is examination assessment. For examined modules the final assessment mark consists of 30-40 per cent course work and 60-70 per cent examination.
