Looking into this volume, we have underline the main purpose of this well-written plus remarkably comprehensive publication is to describe physics of the seabed liquefaction processes taking place around marine structures, together with their implications for the pipelines and sea outfalls, plus quay walls, caisson breakwaters and different other marine structures. We would recommend this title to literally all participants of the ocean as well as marine and coastal engineering industry and anyone with the practical interest in the liquefaction/stability of marine structures. Professor Mutlu Sumer, the author of the this title, has also included numerous real-life examples with the sole intention to duly illustrate the possible catastrophic consequences of the liquefaction of soil as applied to the various marine structures; moreover, the author has also addressed the matters of math modeling of the liquefaction. Some other live examples are directly supporting the discussion on the proper assessment of potential the liquefaction has, as well as the investigation of the benchmark cases. A must-have reading to any specialist in different areas of ocean engineering and any associated disciplines, including students, pros, scientists/researchers taking part in the activities of marine and ocean engineering.
