This deals with the analyses of non-linear problems in the design of offshore structures, as well as those of interest to ocean engineers and designers. It presents conclusions from research pertinent to non-linear waves and their effects on offshore structures. Non-linear effects are visualised based on the results of existing theories, experiments and observations.
Who is it for? Final-year undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students taking specialist courses in non-linear structural mechanics.
Presentation: Similar to a collection of technical review papers. Each chapter is well written, although the connection between some chapters is limited.
Would you recommend it? Yes, but only to a limited readership.
