Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. It includes a description of the various types of pressure vessels including p Platforms installed since the early ‘s provide a more robust design and incorporate many of the lessons learned during the design, installation and operation of earlier platforms.

In addition, guidelines are provided for the assessment of existing platforms in the event that it becomes necessary to make a determination of the fitness for purpose of the structure. LRFD in later editions of this AISC specification are based on calibration with building design practices and may not be applicable to offshore platforms.

Generally, API standards are reviewed and revised, reaffirmed, or withdrawn at least every five years. Publishers Content Coverage Privacy.
