Designing and building structures that will withstand the unique challenges that exist in Subsea operations is no easy task. As deepwater wells are drilled to greater depths, engineers are confronted with a new set problems such as water depth, weather conditions, ocean currents, equipment reliability, and well accessibility, to name just a few. A definitive reference for engineers designing, analyzing and instilling offshore structures, Subsea Structural Engineering Handbook provides an expert guide to the key processes, technologies and equipment that comprise contemporary offshore structures.Written in a clear and easy to understand language, the book is based on the authors 30 years of experience in the design, analysis and instillation of offshore structures. This book answers the above mentioned crucial questions as well as covers the entire spectrum of subjects in the discipline, from route selection and planning to design, construction, installation, materials and corrosion, inspection, welding, repair, risk assessment, and applicable design solutions. It yields a roadmap not only for the subsea engineer but also the project managers, estimators and regulatory personnel hoping to gain an appreciation of the overall issues and directed approaches to subsea engineering design solutions.

"Combined, the two authors have had long careers with major international firms and with academic institutions in the US, Japan, and Norway. They have prepared this book for aspiring subsea engineers, a discipline described in the preface as involving the "design, analysis, construction, installation and integrity management of subsea wellheads, trees, manifolds, jumpers PLETS and PLEMs...." Coverage is logically organized, beginning with subsea production systems (field development, distribution, surveying, positioning, and foundation, cost estimation, power supply, and risk & reliability, among other topics). Subsequent coverage includes flow assurance and system engineering; structures and equipment; and umbilical, risers & flowlines. With the Gulf oil spill, the world saw the consequences of poor engineering and management; this text is important for the thorough education of future practitioners."--
