This book was prepared and released specifically for the offshore industry professionals and students in the field of marine, ocean and coastal engineering, as well as in the field renewable energy and other relevant areas. The author tried to introduce the base for the design of the offshore structures; he addresses the wind and wave energy converters, platforms, wind turbines as well.
The publication created a link between the established and effective theoretical methods of the offshore structure design and calculation, and available recognized standards. The material has been presented in a very simple and easy to understand manner. Some of the most important keywords in the book are offshore structures, structural dynamics and wave energy converters, combined wind and wave energy, energy structures, stochastic methods, wind turbines including floating ones, renewable energy etc.
Definitely recommended for the people engaged in the design and construction of the various offshore structures, making associated calculations and conducting researches in this field since they will find lots of interesting and valuable information in the pages of this volume.
