Applied Offshore Structural Engineering JEE320




This unit is an intermediate-level unit that introduces the students to the industry standards, codes and analysis techniques used in the design of fixed, steel and concrete offshore structures. In addition, students are exposed to experimental and analytical geotechnical techniques used in the classification of soils and in the design and analysis of foundations.  The unit builds heavily on the knowledge gained in Mechanics of Solids and Materials Technology and provides the foundations for design projects conducted in advanced units.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.

Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.
