This book addresses the concepts of material selection and analysis, choice of structural form, construction methods, environmental loads, health monitoring, non-destructive testing, and repair methodologies and rehabilitation of ocean structures. It examines various types of ocean and offshore structures, including drilling platforms, processing platforms and vessels, towers, sea walls and surge barriers, and more. It also explores the use of MEMS in offshore structures, with regard to military and oil exploration applications. Full-color figures as well as numerous solved problems and examples are included to help readers understand the applied concepts.
