Course description: Course objectives: Design of current offshore objects with assessment of structural integrity during exploitation.
Enrolment requirements and required entry competences for the course: /
Student responsibilities: Attending to the lectures, exercises and adopted the program (project).
Grading and evaluation of student work over the course of instruction and at a final exam: Colloquium (or numerical exam) 40%, oral exam 30%, project 30%
Methods of monitoring quality that ensure acquisition of exit competences: Testing through homework
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to (learning outcomes): to distinguish the types of loads of offshore objects calculate the loads due to environment independently carry out the static and dynamic responses of the offshore construction independently analyze the results and compare them to the rules of the selected bureau of shipping.
