In the present work, we have studied the effects of jack-up-soil interaction parameters on the global nonlinear dynamic response of jack-up platform. Various support conditions are initially considered for translational as well rotational degrees of freedom of jack-up rig. Then the influence of soil type on the dynamic response of hull is investigated. The soil type is varied between loose to very dense sand and from soft to stiff clays. Meanwhile, the effect of variation of soil’s shear modulus is considered. The effects of spud-can embedment ratio and spud-can apex-angle on the overall dynamic response of jack-up platform are also taken into account.
