Due in part to a growing demand for offshore oil and gas exploration, the development of marine structures that initially started onshore is now moving into deeper offshore areas. Designers are discovering a need to revisit basic concepts as they anticipate the response behavior of marine structures to increased water depths. Providing a simplified approach to the subject, Advanced Marine Structures explains the fundamentals and advanced concepts of marine architecture introduces various types of offshore platforms, and outlines the different stages of marine structure analysis and design.

Written from a structural engineering perspective, this book focuses on structures constructed for offshore oil and gas exploration, various environmental loads, ultimate load design, fluid-structure interaction, fatigue, and fracture. It also offers detailed descriptions of different types of structural forms, functions and limitations of offshore platforms and explains how different loads act on each. In addition, the text incorporates examples and application problems to illustrate the use of experimental, numerical, and analytical studies in the design and development of marine structures, and reviews relevant literature on wave interaction and porous cylinders.

This book:

  • Focuses on structural reliability
  • Deliberates on fracture and fatigue and examines their application in marine structures
  • Introduces ideas on the retrofit and renovation of marine structures
  • Examines the strength analysis of offshore structures and structural members

Advanced Marine Structures examines the design of offshore structures from a structural engineering perspective and explains the design methodologies and guidelines needed for the progressive conceptualization and design of advanced marine structures.

About the Author:

Srinivasan Chandrasekaran is a professor of the Department of Ocean Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai. He has more than 23 years of teaching, research, and industrial experience. Chandrasekaran has also been a visiting fellow by invitation of the Ministry of Italian University Research to the University of Naples Federico II, Italy (MiUR Fellow), during which time he conducted research on advanced nonlinear modeling and analysis of structures under different environmental loads with experimental verifications. In addition, he has published approximately 130 research papers in international journals and refereed conferences, and authored textbooks on civil and ocean engineering.

Review:

"Professor Chandrasekaran has a wealth of experience in teaching offshore structure dynamics to graduate and undergraduate students. ... This will be very helpful for students who are beginners in this field. Overall, I am certain that the book will prove to be an asset to the students, practicing engineers and the offshore engineering community in general."
―Prof. Kesayoshi Hadano, Yamaguchi University, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

"... gives updated coverage of all relevant aspects related to marine structures such as ‘Environmental loads, Fluid-structure interaction, Reliability, Fatigue and Fracture. The detailed coverage of ultimate load design is quite significant. The illustrations are very clear and of very high standard. The deep expertise and vast experience of the author are reflected in the book."
―Prof. Dr Kurian V. John, Universiti Teknologi Petronas

"Very lucid presentation of complex subject easy to understand. Illustrations and figures are impressive."
―Dr. R. Janardhanam. Professor, University of North Carolina, Charlotte

" The approach used in the book reflects the rich teaching experience of the author. Theory and explanations on Fluid-structure interaction is an indicative example of intrinsic research carried out by the author, which are verified by his authentic publications in Journals and conferences of international repute."
―Prof. Dr Arvind Kumar Jain, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi
