Abstract:

The objective of this report is to investigate the possible earthquake response of a tripod-type ocean structure for the East Coast Air Combat Maneuvering Range offshore Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The structure considered herein, a three-pile structure with equilaterally spaced jacket legs, is located in a water depth MLW of 105 feet. The anchoring of the structure is achieved by driving piles through the jacket legs into the seabed. A superstructure, consisting of an upper deck, an equipment deck, columns and stairs, is attached to the piling above the jacket.
