Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


Offshore Semi-Submersible Platform Engineering presents a primer on the analysis and design of semi-submersible platforms, in particular, while also covering general analysis and design guidelines of offshore compliant platforms. It introduces general structural designs and also examines the details of the various environmental impacts that act upon them, such as fatigue, fire, collisions, and water waves.


Provides thorough coverage of the dynamic analysis and design of semi-submersible platforms

Assists readers through detailed analysis methods using MATLAB(R) as well as other computer programs used to carry out structural analysis

Explains impact loading and dynamic response through numerical analysis and examines the various factors that affect semi-submersibles

Presented in a coursework teaching style, the content is explained in a step-by-step manner using color figures, photos, screen shots, and illustrations, thereby enabling students, researchers, and practicing engineers to carry out analysis with ease

Offshore Semi-Submersible Platform Engineering serves as a practical guide for upper-level students and graduates of various engineering disciplines, for example, naval architecture, and structural, mechanical, pipeline, and offshore engineering. Further, it can also be used as a reference for practicing professionals, as the book covers a broad range of scholarships and applications.
