A marine engineer needs to have a broad background of knowledge within several aspects of marine design and operations. These aspects relate to the design and evaluation of offshore facilities. Such needs arise in the marine industries, in the offshore oil and gas industry as well as in the offshore renewable industry. Developed by a practicing engineer with four decades of experience dealing with engineering problems, Marine Technology and Operations: Theory & Practice takes a practical and solid mathematical approach to marine engineering. The book covers areas of knowledge that the author has found from experience to be essential to marine engineers. It may also serve as a teaser for those who will go into more depth on the different thematic aspects discussed in the book. The book includes qualitative risk analysis which is considered an excellent tool to identify risks in marine operations. The book can serve as a handbook for PhD students and researchers who need a handy introduction to solving marine-technology related problems. It could also serve as an introductory textbook for master degree courses in marine sciences, as well as an inspiration for teachers who will extend the material into specialization courses on stability of vessels, higher order wave analysis, nonlinear motions of vessels, arctic offshore engineering, etc.
