## Hydrodynamics of Offshore StructuresThe subject of hydrodynamics applied to offshore structures is vast. The topics covered in this book aim to help the reader understand basic principles while at the same time giving the designer enough information for particular designs. Thus, results are given with derivations, and applications are discussed with the aid of examples, with an overview of the advantages and limitations of the method involved. This makes the book suitable as a text for undergraduate and graduate students specializing in offshore and ocean engineering. |
