The application of weight losses to investigate corrosion effects on structural behaviour of an offshore structure under wave loads is presented in this study Weight losses of sections obtained during previous experimental studies are implemented in the model. The jacket type structural model is analysed in its intact and deteriorated forms to demonstrate corrosion effects. The ABAQUS finite elements program is utilized and the fluid structure interaction (FSI) technique is adopted when modelling the interaction between solid and fluid domains. Mode shapes, first three natural frequencies, displacements of selected points, and maximum stresses, are comparatively presented. Source

The determination of behaviour of structural members under load has become increasingly prominent with current advances in technology. The effect of impact on solids should not be ignored. The impact behaviour of non-reinforced concrete beams is investigated in this study both experimentally and using the finite element analysis. Members are tested in laboratory, and the ABAQUS software is used in the analysis. Accelerations, velocities, displacements, impact forces, and energy absorption capacities, have been obtained in the scope of these analyses. Source
