The nonlinear dynamic response of jacket-type offshore platform (which has been installed in Persian Gulf) under simultaneously wave and earthquake loads is conducted. The interaction between soil and piles is modeled by Konagai-Nogami model. The structure is modeled by finite element method. The analyses include models with the longitudinal component of earthquake and wave in the same direction and in different directions. The results indicate that when the longitudinal component of earthquake and wave are in the same direction, wave may reduce the response of studied platform and when they are in different directions, in some cases there is an increase in the response of platform.
