AbstractAs a result of IMD's program review, the need for establishing an offshore structure analysis and research capability within the Offshore Engineering Group of the Institute for Marine Dynamics has been identified. The purpose of the present document is to present a review of the state of the art of the structural models of the behaviour of floating or fixed offshore structures, the availability of such models, and the need for IMD to acquire a capability in offshore engineering analysis and research as applied to offshore structures. The review will focus on the relevant technology which is at present used by some classification societies, recognized consultant firms and design offices and R&D establishments. The reviewed technology is the most representative of the current design and industrial practice for well documented range of applications.
