Sea Loads on Ships and Offshore Structures

This book introduces the theory of the structural loading on ships and offshore structures caused by wind, waves, and currents, and goes on to describe the applications of this theory in terms of real structures. The main topics described are linear-wave induced motions and loads on floating structures, numerical methods for ascertaining wave induced motions and loads, secone-order nonlinear problems, viscous loads and damping, station keeping and water impact and entry. The text has been written for engineers and scientists interested in problems related to the design and operation of ships and offshore structures.
