Some offshore platforms need modifications or addition of new modules that require re-assessment of their design. An economical way of allowing for changes without major strengthening of the platform is by reducing the safety margin used in the original design by use of measured data during the operation. This paper presents application of this concept to Troll A platform in which the measured changes in the platform’s natural periods due to the nonlinear soil behavior under different storm conditions were used to calibrate the soil-foundation spring adopted in the design.
