The Selection and Numerical Simulation of Marine Engineering Floating Pier Structure
As a type of very large floating structures，the design concept of the grid structure is applied to the marine engineering floating pier structure. The grid structure has many merits such as high structural strength, stiffness, integrity, lower weight and high degree of industrialization. A finite element software named ABAQUS is used to analyze the stress and strain of the marine engineering floating pier structure in the marine environment. The analysis shows that the structure meets the engineering requirements in structural strength, stiffness, stability and wave resistance.
