The effect of axial pre-loading on the behaviour and instability of a cylindrical member of an offshore structure struck by a supply vessel has been investigated. Numerical models have been used to analyse a tubular member with and without axial pre-loading. It has been found that axial pre-loading has a marked effect on the lateral collapse load of the member and more dramatically on the level of energy that the member can absorb prior to its collapse. The effect of different end conditions on… CONTINUE READING
