Non-linear time domain irregular wave simulations have been performed for the Kvitebjørn jacket platform located in the North Sea with the aim to quantify the dynamic amplification. The jacket is a slender structure installed in about 190m water depth.

For each of the selected extreme sea states both quasi-static and dynamic response simulations have been carried out for several wave realizations using different seeds. Based on the quasi-static response and dynamic response, equivalent dynamic amplification factors (EDAFs) were calculated for different response measures in the jacket. EDAF is the factor one has to multiply the q-probability quasi-static response with in order to obtain an adequate estimate of the q-probability dynamic response. The EDAFs are to be used in ultimate limit state (ULS) and accidental limit state (ALS) analyses of the platform.

Simulations were performed applying a Gaussian wave with Wheeler stretching and a second-order wave model.

This paper focuses on the selection of wave kinematics method and on the establishment of the EDAF analysis procedure.
