As many jacket type steel platforms have been constructed in the highly active seismic area, seismic reliability evaluation of such structures is desirable. Ultimate limit state (ULS) with base shear capacity and demand can be used to estimate seismic performance of fixed offshore platform against collapse. Base shear capacity is evaluated from pushover analysis on a 3D finite element model of the offshore structure using different load patterns. Base shear demand is calculated from spectral acceleration at a given site and the total mass of the platform. Uncertainties are considered in both capacity and demand evaluations.

With the limit state function, seismic fragility of a prototype structure is assessed using reliability analysis. The results indicate that various load patterns affect the seismic performance evaluation. It is also found that the steel yield stress is a critical parameter in the reliability of the steel jacket platforms.
