Offshore Vessels Design Manual
J A Witz and D T Brown
The Offshore Vessels Design Manual provides an easy-to-use guide to a whole spectrum of design processes including essential design data, procedures and theory necessary to carry out basic design and detailed evaluation of semi-submersibles, monohulls and tensioned buoyant platforms. The other areas covered include surveys of vessel types, hydrostatics, wave theory, motion response, structural loads and stresses, moorings, model testing, in-service monitoring, operability and motion reduction devices.
