   The material in this book has been continuously developed since the author started to teach hydrodynamics of ships and offshore structures at the Norwegian Institute of Technology (NTH) in 1974. During this period offshore oil activity has played an important role in Norwegian society. Interest in ships for transportation has changed during these years. At the moment there is an increasing interest in developing high-speed marine vehicles for transportation of goods and passengers. In the future it is expected that oil and gas exploration will move into areas of deeper water. Examples on future new areas where ocean engineers and naval architects can be of help is fish farming in open sea, recovery of deep-sea minerals, and development of marine energy resources from temperature gradients and waves. In all these areas there is a need to know about sea loads. This is what this book is all about. The book covers applications in a broad area. This includes conventional ships, high-speed marine vehicles, fixed and floating offshore structures.
