PREFACE
Due to the rapid growth of the offshore field, particularly in the exploration and develop-ment of offshore oil and gas fields in deep waters of the oceans, the science and engineeringin this area is seeing a phenomenal advancement. This advanced knowledge is not readilyavailable for use by the practitioners in the field in a single reference.Tremendous strides have been made in the last decades in the advancement of offshoreexploration and production of minerals. This has given rise to developments of newconcepts and structures and material for application in the deep oceans. This has generatedan obvious need of a reference book providing the state-of-the art in offshore engineering.This handbook
is
an attempt to fill this gap. It covers the important aspects of offshorestructure design, installation and operation. The book covers the basic backgroundmaterial and its application in offshore engineering. Particular emphasis is placed in theapplication of the theory to practical problems. It includes the practical aspects of theoffshore structures with handy design guides. simple description of the various componentsof the offshore engineering and their functions.One of the unique strengths of the book is the impressive and encompassing presentationof current functional and operational offshore development for
all
those involved withoffshore structures. It is tailored as a reference book for the practicing engineers, andshould serve as a handy reference book for the design engineers and consultant involvedwith offshore engineering and the design of offshore structures. This book emphasizesthe practical aspects rather than the theoretical treatments needed in the research inthe field of offshore engineering. In particular, it describes the dos and don’ts of allaspects of offshore structures. Much hands-on experience has been incorporated in thewrite up and contents of the book. Simple formulas and guidelines are providedthroughout the book. Detailed design calculations, discussion
of
software development,and the background mathematics has been purposely left out. The book is not intendedto provide detailed design methods, which should be used in conjunction with theknowledge and guidelines included in the book. This does not mean that they are notnecessary for the design of offshore structures. Typically, the advanced formulations arehandled by specialized software. The primary purpose of the book is to provide theimportant practical aspects of offshore engineering without going into the nitty gritty ofthe actual detailed design. Long derivations or mathematical treatments are avoided.Where necessary, formulas are stated in simple terms for easy calculations. Illustrationsare provided in these cases. Information is provided in handy reference tables and designcharts. Examples are provided to
show
how the theory outlined in the book is applied inthe design of structures. Many examples are borrowed from the deep-water offshorestructures of interest today including their components, and material that completes thesystem.
