Dynamic Response Analysis of Jacket Wharf Structure under Wave
With the large ship transportation for bulk cargo marine development, construction of modern offshore deep water wharf is becoming more and more important. Based on the view of domestic offshore deep water wharf, the jacket structure was proposed as deep water light wharf. In consideration of the structure dynamic responses and the pile foundation pull-out resistance, three types of pile foundation were adopted, which are the hollow steel piles, the reinforced concrete pile and the hollow steel piles poured with granular materials. By finite element method the vibration characteristic and transient dynamic response to wave load were calculated. The results show that the jacket structure’s dynamic response to wave is not obvious. Also the structure with reinforced concrete pile can reduce the structure vibration displacement.
