Abstract

Even if living against the water is challenging, living with the rising water level is doable. The global average sea level is rising as a result of global warming. The land surface is being occupied by rising water levels. Several places of the globe are in danger of disappearing from the map, vanishing under water, due to rising sea levels. Society will have to adjust and possibly live in floating dwellings one day. Some countries are further along in their adaptation to the effects of global warming, particularly the rising sea level, than others, depending on their geographical location. In locations where the land is mostly covered by water, the sole option to survive the rising waters is floating house. A 96.6m. sq. long floating house with dimensions of 11.5mx8.4m is considered. This paper aims to construct a floating house and use Ansys software to analyse the structure.
