The publication was published with the intention to introduce the theoretical principles of the structural loading of vessels and various offshore structures commonly caused by waves, winds and currents. The author has provided the description of the application of subject theory to the real structures. The content provides all required fundamentals as well as the advanced calculations and describes types of sea loads experienced by ships and offshore facilities.

It will be excellent when used as supplementary material to enrich the knowledge of the practicing engineers in the field of loads. Note that the readers are expected to have some knowledge of mathematics and fluid motions in order to get better understanding. A really essential reading for the offshore engineers. The author of the volume aims to provide a thorough understanding through the simplified math models.

Among the most important topics described in the book are numerical methods used to ascertain the motions and loads induced by waves, stationkeeping, linear waves and motions induced by them, water impact etc. Extensive use of the live examples and exercises will help to understand the material presented.
