The course provides a broad overview of design, analysis and construction of offshore structures, one of the most demanding set of tasks faced by the engineering profession. Over and above the usual conditions and situations met by land-based structures, offshore structures have the added complication of being placed in an ocean environment where hydrodynamic interaction effects, water wave theories and structure-fluid interaction in waves become major considerations in their design.
