Ji, H.W.; Kim, H.J., and Park, K.Y., 2020. Lateral behavior analysis due to differential deflection between jetty structures In: Malvárez, G. and Navas, F. (eds.), Global Coastal Issues of 2020. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 95, pp. 1–5. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208.
Particular attention shall be paid to the design of steel/concrete structures supporting piping or equipment which have a sensitiveness to deflection. In case of excessive displacement generated in the substructure, the supported topside facilities can be subjected to additional stress caused by the imposed-deformation. Therefore differential deflection between structures should be estimated and then to be considered in the topside facilities. However, it is incredibly difficult for designer to predict the lateral behavior of the structures, using existing simple ways, under environmental and seismic load. Therefore a rigorous analysis should be performed to investigate the lateral behavior of the structures.
