    Abstract: Welded tubular structure is the backbone of offshore jacket platform. As a thin-walled structure, local joint flexibility (LJF) in a tubular structure is prominent, and it may produce significant effect on the dynamic performance for the overall structure. This study presents a simplified model to analyze the dynamic behavior of a steel tubular str... Show More
