The book is presently dated but perhaps useful for the novice who needs some aspects of the principles of offshore structural analysis. There are eleven chapters covering such topics, i.e. wind forces, wave forces, energy spectrum of the ocean, basic naval architecture, offshore platform topside structures, jacket structures, pile foundation, marine operations, fabrication & installation of offshore platforms, dynamic analysis of offshore platforms, fatigue analysis and mooring design. Some worked examples are provided in the text. In the supplement to the book, reference is made to the design criteria for tubular joints based on API RP (American Petroleum Institute Recommended Practice) 2A. The book is useful for those studying offshore structures at undergraduate level but can be useful as background reading for those professionals in the offshore engineering field.Those intending more detailed analysis of offshore structures can refer to Chakrabarty, Handbook of Offshore Engineering, Vol. I and Vol. II.
