Here is the listing of Best reference books on Design of Offshore Structure.
|1. “Numerical Methods in Offshore Engineering” by O.C. Zienkiewicz, R. Wlewis and K.G. Stagg
Book Review: This book is divided into three sections and they deal with the problems of fluid loading, general methods of computing dynamic response and foundation and sea-bed problems. The book also contains latest advancements of all the numerical methods thereby solving problems in software engineering. The book also discusses the design and analysis requirements for fixed offshore structures and also stresses on the random nature of the environmental forces. The book also describes numerical methods for dynamic analysis that includes frequency response, numerical integration methods and normal modes usage.
|2. “Offshore Structures: Design, Construction and Maintenance” by Mohamed A. El-Reedy
Book Review: This book provides solutions to various problems like water depth, weather conditions, ocean currents, equipment reliability and well accessibility that arise in the field of offshore structures. This book guides the designing of structures even in the harshest environments. The book also covers all types of offshore structures and platforms. The book also presents nonlinear analysis as a new technique to design and access the existing structure. This book presents the engineers with the up-to-date methods for performing structural life cycle analysis using nondestructive testing.
