Dynamics of Offshore Structures provides an integrated treatment of the main subject areas that contribute to the design, construction, installation, and operation of fixed and floating offshore structures. The book begins with an overview of offshore oil and gas development and offshore structures. Separate chapters follow on the ocean environment; basic fluid mechanics; gravity wave theories; fluid loading on offshore structures; hydrostatics and dynamic response of floating bodies; and model testing of offshore structures. This book is prepared with particular emphasis on the fundamentals of oceanography, basic fluid mechanics, wave theory, hydrodynamics, naval architecture, and structural analysis to meet the needs of students reading ocean engineering or naval architecture, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Basic equations and theoretical results are derived in a rigorous manner but sections on model testing, full-scale measurements, design, and certification are also induced to ensure that the book is of value to professional engineers seeking a balanced treatment of fundamental and practical issues.
