Summary:This updated translation from the original German edition provides general background information on oceanology and ocean engineering is given, along with descriptions of drilling techniques, offshore structures and hydrocarbon production at sea. The main part of the book is concerned with the hydrostatic and hydrodynamic analysis of marine structures, followed by an evaluation of marine structure reliability. Environmental conditions affecting marine structures, wave statistics, and the application of reliability theory to code development are also discussed. Students and practising engineers who have an interest in the analysis of marine structures will find this book an invaluable reference
