Abstract

API (WSD) and ISO 19902 (LRFD) codes are being used nowadays for design of Jacket platforms all over the world. ISO LRFD code is a probabilistic code which takes into account the uncertainties of material and loads and thus enables an economical design. This advantage is not available for API WSD code. The sustainable development of physical structures depend not only on reliability of structures but also on cost saving. Thus it is high time for Malaysia to adopt ISO code with local environmental load factors. ISO load factors are based on calibration of the Gulf of Mexico and North Sea environment. In this study, three offshore regions of Malaysia have been taken separately.
