For a pioneering offshore company MOCS is assisting in the concept and basic structural design of multiple floating tidal energy platforms. Part of the challenge is the fatigue analysis of these unique structures. One of the methods used for the fatigue assessment is the Damage Equivalent Load Approach which can be used for the optimization of the structural design in an early phase of the project.
