Wave Mechanics and Wave Loads on Marine Structures provides a new perspective on the calculation of wave forces on ocean structures, unifying the deterministic and probabilistic approaches to wave theory and combining the methods used in field and experimental measurement. Presenting his quasi-determinism (QD) theory and approach of using small-scale field experiments (SSFEs), author Paolo Boccotti simplifies the findings and techniques honed in his ground-breaking work to provide engineers and researchers with practical new methods of analysis. Including numerous worked examples and case studies, Wave Mechanics and Wave Loads on Marine Structures also discusses and provides useful FORTRAN programs, including a subroutine for calculating particle velocity and acceleration in wave groups, and programs for calculating wave loads on several kinds of structures. Solves the conceptual separation of deterministic and stochastic approaches to wave theory seen in other resources through the application of quasi-determinism (QD) theory Combines the distinct experimental activities of field measurements and wave tank experiment using small-scale field experiments (SSFEs) Simplifies and applies the ground-breaking work and techniques of this leading expert in wave theory and marine construction

In a unitary way, this monograph deals with a wide range of subjects related to the mechanics of sea waves. The book highlights recent theoretical results on the dynamics of random wind-generated waves, on long-term wave statistics, and on beach planform evolution. A fresh approach is given to more traditional concepts. For example, new evidence from a recent series of small-scale field experiments is used to introduce some crucial topics like wave forces. Also, the book gives some worked examples for the design of offshore or coastal structures. An exciting subject dealt with in the book is the quasi-deterministic mechanics of three-dimensional wave groups in sea storms, and the loads exerted by these wave groups on offshore structures. The text is intended for researchers and graduate students in ocean engineering, but may also be understood by undergraduates. The more complex concepts are explained with examples or more extensive case studies.

The analysis, design and construction of offshore structures is arguably one of the most demanding sets of tasks faced by the engineering profession. Over and above the usual conditions and situations met by land-based structures, offshore structures have the added complication of being placed in an ocean environment where hydrodynamic interaction effects and dynamic response become major considerations in their design. A basic understanding of a number of key subject areas is essential to an engineer likely to be involved in the design of offshore structures. Wave Mechanics and Wave Loads on Marine Structures provides a broad overview of some of the key factors in the analysis and design of offshore structures to be considered by an engineer uninitiated in the field of offshore engineering. Topics covered range from water wave theories, structure-fluid interaction in waves to the prediction of extreme values of response from spectral modeling approaches. It presents a new outlook on the measurement of wave forces on ocean structures, uniting the deterministic and probabilistic methodologies to wave theory and linking the methods used in field and experimental measurement.

Offshore Mechanics: Structural and Fluid Dynamics for Recent Applications is a textbook which covers theoretical concepts in offshore mechanics with consideration to new applications. Whereas most of the books currently available in the field of offshore mechanics use traditional oil, gas, and ship industry examples in order to explain the fundamentals in offshore mechanics, this book uses more recent applications including offshore wind farms, ocean energy devices, aquaculture, floating bridges and submerged tunnels. Offshore Mechanics: Structural and Fluid Dynamics for Recent Applications covers traditional and more recent methodologies used in offshore structure modelling (including SPH and Hydro-elasticity models). It examines numerical techniques, including computational fluid dynamics and finite element method and includes easy to understand examples.

This book is intended as an introduction to classical water wave theory for the college senior or first year graduate student. The material is self-contained; almost all mathematical and engineering concepts are presented or derived in the text, thus making the book accessible to practicing engineers as well. The book commences with a review of fluid mechanics and basic vector concepts. The formulation and solution of the governing boundary value problem for small amplitude waves are developed and the kinematic and pressure fields for short and long waves are explored. The transformation of waves due to variations in depth and their interactions with structures are derived. Wavemaker theories and the statistics of ocean waves are reviewed. The application of the water particle motions and pressure fields are applied to the calculation of wave forces on small and large objects. Extension of the linear theory results to several nonlinear wave properties is presented. Each chapter concludes with a set of homework problems exercising and sometimes extending the material presented in the chapter. An appendix provides a description of nine experiments which can be performed, with little additional equipment, in most wave tank facilities.

Dynamics of Offshore Structures provides an integrated treatment of the main subject areas that contribute to the design, construction, installation, and operation of fixed and floating offshore structures. The book begins with an overview of offshore oil and gas development and offshore structures. Separate chapters follow on the ocean environment; basic fluid mechanics; gravity wave theories; fluid loading on offshore structures; hydrostatics and dynamic response of floating bodies; and model testing of offshore structures. This book is prepared with particular emphasis on the fundamentals of oceanography, basic fluid mechanics, wave theory, hydrodynamics, naval architecture, and structural analysis to meet the needs of students reading ocean engineering or naval architecture, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Basic equations and theoretical results are derived in a rigorous manner but sections on model testing, full-scale measurements, design, and certification are also induced to ensure that the book is of value to professional engineers seeking a balanced treatment of fundamental and practical issues.
