The principal aim of this paper is to study the dynamic behaviour of offshore platforms subjected to wave loading. A general review of offshore structure, wave loading and their effects on offshore structures are presented. A brief review on the basics of Wavelet analysis is also mentioned in this study. The techniques for modeling wave loading in finite element analyses are described and discussed in detail. A series of 3D analyses were carried out using the ABAQUS finite element software to study the effects on the dynamic response of the change in support conditions at the seabed. The effects of wave height, wave period and wave velocity on platform behaviour were studied. The results from time history analysis are characterized using Wavelet Analysis in order to obtain the response pattern due to wave loading. These analyses allow the frequency response of the jacket structures to be described in the time domain. These results give a clear view on the response of jacket structure. The important parameters on offshore modeling have also been identified and discussed in this paper. The results presented in this study can be used as a guidance for engineer in order to understand the dynamic behaviour of jacket structures subjected to wave loading.
