The objective of this study was to develop an understanding of the possible failure modes of such structures and to prepare a basis for the fundamental modelling of the dynamic interaction of the structure, loading and foundations of jack-up structures on a generic basis. The work presented in this report is concerned with the determination of the non-linear response of jack-up structures to dynamic loading. The analysis includes nonlinearities in the structure, the loading and the interaction between the structure and the seabed.
