Exploitation of oil and gas reserves from hydrocarbon reservoirs below the sea bed has increased rapidly since the 1960s. However, the wide range of subject areas within ocean engineering has posed problems in the teaching of students because it involves reference to textbooks on many disciplines including corrosion metallurgy, meteorology, process engineering and even marine biology. In this textbook, the author aims to present an integrated treatment of the main subject areas which contribute to the design, construction, installation and operation of fixed and floating offshore structures. It emphasizes the fundamentals of oceanography, fluid mechanics, wave theory, hydrodynamics and structural analysis for students reading ocean engineering or naval architecture at undergraduate or postgraduate level. Sections on model testing, full-scale measurements, design and certification are also included to ensure that the book is of value to professional engineers.

Dynamics of Offshore Structures, Minoo H. Patel

... Engineering is an interesting and vast field. New technologies are discovered or invented every day, and the older ones must get updated In the past, engineers used to search libraries or go through various books to keep up with the recent technological advancements or find the solution to various problems. Nowadays, it is possible to do so with the help of just one click.
