This book will provide a complete coverage on the dynamics of floating offshore structures. Topics like random waves, wind and current, etc. will be developed from the fundamental principles and their applications to offshore structures will be discussed. The design aspect of the offshore structure, both for short-term and long-term response and structural fatigue, are important elements of the dynamic response and will be further elaborated upon in the text. "Dynamcs of Floating Offshore Structures" is designed to be used both as a textbook for graduate courses and as a reference work in offshore and ocean engineering. Its uniqueness lies in its treatment of theoretical and practical aspects of offshore structure dynamics and will stand out from the other available publications on this general subject.
