The issue of a load resistance factor design version reflects the worldwide trend away from working stress design to reliability based methods.

As a reliability based alternative, the load resistance factor design LRFD method offers a more consistent approach to platform safety than does the existing RP2A working stress design WSD method.


The study is based on work performed for Woodside as part of the substructure design for the Goodwyn ‘A’ Lrcd. Other Resources Looking for more?

Although aapi differences exist api rp2a lrfd 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.

Some of the OnePetro partner api rp2a lrfd have developed subject- specific wikis that may help. The work is confined to the in-place strength of the jacket and module support frame MSF.

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 for design, accompanied by lgfd on problem areas lying outside this framework. LRFD however, is an improved approach to structural design which takes into account the possible uncertainties in the applied loads and component resistances. The reliability of the Goodwyn ‘A’ substructure has been a major focus rp2q the design and results are presented showing the platform api rp2a lrfd capacity, computed using non-linear inelastic ductility api rp2a lrfd.
