International Offshore
Structures Design Course 2020

WELCOME TO THE NEW EDITION OF INTERNATIONAL
OFFSHORE STRUCTURES DESIGN COURSE
About The Event

The present course provides a solid background on offshore structures design. By covering a wide range of themes, the attendees of this 2 day course will learn how to design floating and fixed structures, accounting for hydrodynamic loads and environmental loads, among others. Detailed knowledge of marine operations and multinational companies’ keynote lectures will also be provided. All course will be provided in a personalized virtual environment. This course is a teasing event for the presential course to be held in 2021 at UFMG during the conference SIM . It is a joint organization between the Hydraulics Institute of Water Resources (IHRH) and UFMG.
