finite element analysis North Borneojacket platforms Manila Trench seaquake SACS TUNA-M2t sunami simulation risk rating system risk rating model
This work details the simulation of tsunami waves generated by seaquakes in the Manila Trench and their effect on fixed oil and gas jacket platforms in waters offshore North Borneo. For this study, a four-leg livingquarter jacket platform located in a water depth of 63m is modelled in SACS v5.3. Malaysia has traditionally been perceived to be safe from the hazards of earthquakes and tsunamis. Local design practices tend to neglect tsunami waves and include no such provisions. In 2004, a 9.3Mw seaquake occurred off the northwest coast of Aceh, which generated tsunami waves that caused destruction in Malaysiatotalling US$ 25 million and 68 deaths. This event prompted an awareness of the need to study the reliability of fixed offshore platforms scattered throughout Malaysian waters. In this paper, we present a review ofresearch on the seismicity of the Manila Trench, which is perceived to be high risk for Southeast Asia. From the tsunami numerical model TUNA-M2, we extract computer-simulated tsunami waves at prescribed grid points in the vicinity of the platformsin the region. Using wave heights as input, we simulate the tsunami using SACS v5.3structural analysis software of offshore platforms,which is widely accepted by the industry. We employ the nonlinear solitary wave theory in our tsunami loading calculationsfor the platforms, and formulatea platform-specific risk quantification system. We then perform an intensive structural sensitivity analysis and derive a corresponding platform-specific riskrating model.
