While existing literature on offshore structures does touch on model testing, a comprehensive text discussing the design, construction, instrumentation, testing and analysis of physical models is lacking. This book aims to fill that vacuum and provide, through its survey of the theoretical and practical aspects of physical modelling, an in-depth coverage of the technology of model testing. Although the main focus is on offshore construction, the text should prove of use to the entire field of engineering, and its breadth of scope should appeal not only to engineers and naval architects but to scientists interested in structural or hydraulic testing as well.
