Offshore Structures: Design, Construction and Maintenance, Second Edition covers all types of offshore structures and platforms employed worldwide. As the ultimate reference for selecting, operating and maintaining offshore structures, this book provides a roadmap for designing structures which will stand up even in the harshest environments. Subsea pipeline design and installation is also covered in this edition, as is the selection of the proper type of offshore structure, the design procedure for the fixed offshore structure, nonlinear analysis (Push over) as a new technique to design and assess the existing structure, and more.

With this book in hand, engineers will have the most up-to-date methods for performing a structural lifecycle analysis, implementing maintenance plans for topsides and jackets and using non-destructive testing.

Key Features

  • Provides a one-stop guide to offshore structure design and analysis
  • Presents easy-to-understand methods for structural lifecycle analysis
  • Contains expert advice for designing offshore platforms for all types of environments
