Two Basic Concepts in Offshore Engineeringby Guillermo D. Hahn, Vanderbilt Univ, Nashville, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Engineering Mechanics
Abstract: Two concepts are developed which lead to an improved understanding of the characteristics of the wave forces that act on deep-water, jacket-type offshore structures. The first concept applies to the inertia component of the wave loading; the second concept relates to the associated drag force component. These concepts further contribute to simplify the analysis and understanding of the dynamic response of such structures to wave excitations, and are of practical usefulness.
