Weight Control of offshore installations is critical to ensure that any Assembly, Module or Topsides may be installed using the proposed method, with minimum hook-up, and that the overall design caters for the most severe operating criteria identified. RP O-3 establishes the requirements for weighing Assemblies, Modules or a complete Topsides facility. It presents methods for preparation before a weighing and reporting results after a weighing has been completed and establishes methods employed to determine the center of gravity from a weighing process.
I’d like to thank the Offshore committee for the hard work in getting this document ready for publishing. A special thanks goes out to Dave Bennett for providing his leadership for this document with respect to being a major author and editor during the development process
UPCOMING SAWE WORKSHOP: January 29th, 10:00 – 11:00 am CST
Do you feel there are “Mass Properties 101” basics that every Mass Properties engineer should be knowledgeable about regardless of industry?
The SAWE Mass Properties Engineer Certification Committee is hosting an exam question brainstorming workshop where you can help shape the questions included on an Associate-Level Certified Mass Properties Engineer exam. This exam will be non-industry specific, and will be geared toward members who have either a Bachelor’s degree and 2 years of experience OR 5 years of applicable MPE experience.
The workshop will be virtual with breakout “rooms” for different Mass Properties topics.
Not only is this an opportunity to help shape the knowledge base required for future Certified Mass Properties Engineers, this is also an opportunity to get to know your mass properties colleagues in an interactive setting.
If you are unable to attend the workshop but still want to submit questions, please submit them to Anjie.L.Emmett@NASA.gov
Keep an eye out for emails and updated blog posts on how to sign up!
The facilitators will send out topics, an agenda, and materials on January 20th.
