ISO 19902

SDC Verifier enables automatic ISO 19902 (1st, ISO19902:2007 and 2nd ISO 19902:2020 editions) Guidelines verification directly in Ansys Mechanical, Femap and Simcenter 3D.

ISO 19902 (Petroleum and natural gas industries— Fixed steel offshore structures) was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 67, Materials, equipment and offshore structures for petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries, Subcommittee SC 7, Offshore structures.

This first edition of ISO 19902 cancels and replaces ISO 13819-2:1995 (Petroleum and natural gas industries — Offshore structures — Part 2: Fixed steel structures), which has been technically revised.

The second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 19902:2007), which has been technically
revised. It also incorporates the Amendment ISO 19902:2007/Amd.1:2013.

ISO 19902 used for Member Check (you need to use Beam Member Finder firstly for that), and Joint Check verification.

Both ISO 19902:2007 and ISO 19902:2020 specifies requirements and provides recommendations applicable to the following types of fixed steel offshore structures for the petroleum and natural gas industries: caissons, freestanding and braced; jackets; mono towers; towers.

ISO 19902 is one of a series of standards for offshore structures.

Petroleum and natural gas industries – Fixed steel offshore structures

In addition, it is applicable to compliant bottom founded structures, steel gravity structures, jack-ups, other bottom founded structures and other structures related to offshore structures (such as underwater oil storage tanks, bridges and connecting structures), to the extent to which its requirements are relevant.

It contains requirements for planning and engineering of the following tasks: design, fabrication, transportation and installation of new structures as well as their future removal; in-service inspection and integrity management of both new and existing structures; assessment of existing structures; evaluation of structures for reuse at different locations.
