ABS Advisory on Fatigue Monitoring of Floating Production Installations

This Advisory provides an overview of the relevant parameters that significantly impact the fatigue life calculations for the structural connections of ship-type offshore units.

The purpose of this Advisory is to describe the parameters that can be measured during a unit’s lifecycle using actual operational historical data as an alternative method to the Rule prescriptive requirements for the estimation of remaining fatigue life of structural connections.

With this Advisory and the quality measurement procedures described in other ABS publications, owners and operators will have the necessary tools to measure the main parameters that will lead to a customized, assetspecific estimation of fatigue life of structural connections.
