The Living-Quarters (hereafter referred to as ‘LQ’) is one of the major structures for ship and offshore structure. The LQ gives safe living conditions to crews on board. Until now the structural design of LQ structure is based on simplistic beam calculation to determine the initial scantling under design load. These days, safety for people is a raising issue. It is needed to meet the high oil company’s needs as well as technical specification throughout offshore project. But, the engineering procedure for LQ structure is not clearly defined by classification of society rules and international standards.

In this paper, the newly engineering procedure for LQ design is established considering LQ global loads with local loads for large equipment such as helideck structure, telecom mast and life saving appliances, and so on. To consider LQ global loads with local loads, the integrated three dimensional FE model and high technology engineering should be needed to require many kind of rules for equipment.

Recently, the damage of LQ structure is occasionally reported during towing condition for jack-up rig structure. The LQ of jack-up rig is encountered such as slamming pressure and greenwater produced by harsh wave loads during towing condition because of small height of freeboard comparing to the wave height. To verify the structural safety under towing condition, the detailed non-liner analysis is performed to verify the load-carrying capacity against greenwater pressure.

We newly propose a structural engineering procedure to improve the reliability of the LQ design in the jack-up rigs. From basis of this procedure, a more reasonable and optimized results are proposed as a practical manner as well as scientific approach.
