Design of Floating Offshore Structures JEE359

Introduction

This unit is an advanced ocean engineering unit that introduces the students to the complex hydrodynamic and structural problems associated to the design of floating structures. By combining the knowledge gained in Hydrostatics, Applied Ocean Wave Mechanics and Mechanics of Solids, students will learn the engineering principles that dictate the size and govern the loads and motions experienced by free and moored floating structures. Finally, the students will be exposed to current experimental and numerical simulation techniques used to evaluate the performance of these structures.

Note

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.

Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
