Description: Offshore geotechnical engineering owes much to the historical developments of soil mechanics by Karl Terzaghi, Donald Taylor, Arthur Casagrande, Ralph Peck, Harry Seed, Alec Skempton, Laurits Bjerrum, Andrew Schofield and others. A major part of our current knowledge of offshore geotechnical engineering has been developed by countless geotechnical engineers, managers, and others in the offshore industry itself. This book is dedicated to all those who have contributed to the subject, and who continue to contribute and share their knowledge.
This book presents the core design skills for this subject. It is selfcontained, and can be used as a comprehensive primer for those new to offshore structures, or as a course text for students. It is advisable that readers have a prior understanding of soil mechanics and foundation engineering. Chapter 3 provides an overview of the main points, as they apply to offshore engineering, for readers without the advisable prerequisites.
The book is designed as an introduction to an extensive literature, but not as a replacement for that literature. Readers should also explore the offshore standards and codes of practice, listed at the start of this book.
The most widely used practice has been API RP2A. Readers should also expect to read widely, particularly proceedings of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) held in Houston, Texas every May.
