Hydrodynamics of offshore structures – S. K. Chakrabarti – Google Books
Description The 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 htdrodynamics. This makes the book suitable as a text for undergraduate and graduate students specializing in offshore and ocean engineering. In addition, the final results, including tables and illustrations may be referenced directly without going through detailed derivations.
They can therefore be used by design and applications engineers involved in offshore structure design. This title also introduces various types of offshore structures with reference to actual installations in various parts of the world.
It describes wave mechanics and how to choose wave theories and design waves. After chakrabbarti choice of design wave is made, the author describes how this wave is used to obtain forces on a fixed offshore structure. If the structure is allowed to move, various methods of obtaining the motions of the structure are given.
The short- and long-term responses are derived and different methods are described. The use of model tests to verify these methods at each step is shown.
