ADVANCED MARINE STRUCTURES
Marine structures are constructed for different purposes. Recent advancements in construction materials, innovative structural forms, and methods of modeling and analysis make the understanding of the subject more broad-based. This book is an attempt in the direction of explaining various stages of the analysis and design of marine structures. The essential concepts of the subject are presented so as to be useful for practicing engineers and graduate students in different engineering branches, namely: civil, mechanical, structural, naval architecture, production, and marine. With vast experience of teaching this subject and guiding research, a humble attempt is made to present the basics in a closed form that will be useful for readers. The chapters in this publication are organized in such way that the readers get an overall idea of various types of marine structures constructed for offshore oil and gas exploration as well as various environmental loads, ultimate load design, fluid-structure interaction, fatigue, and fracture. Numerical application problems and examples have been chosen in order to illustrate the use of analytical, experimental and numerical studies in the design and development of marine structures. The basics of design, plastic analysis, and estimation of shear center and shape factors will be useful for students because they are explained with simple examples
