Prepared by the Program Committee, Offshore Technology Conference, of the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute of ASCE.

This series presents classic papers from the early years of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), the world's leading event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of exploration, drilling, production, and environmental protection. Since the OTC began in 1969, some of the civil engineering papers presented there have provided innovation in, vision for, and lasting impact on the design, construction, or installation of offshore infrastructure. Many papers have been adopted by design standards worldwide or have become an integral part of design software. Others have had influence far beyond the offshore industry, and some have become integral to the design process of onshore structures such as buildings and bridges.

Volume 2 contains eight papers inducted into the OTC Hall of Fame in May 2007. The classic documents contained in this volume form the core of current practice worldwide, covering major topics in offshore technology such as long-term wave probabilities, tubular joints, offshore gravity structures, wave return periods, and linearization techniques.

Subject Headings: Offshore structures | Offshore platforms | Structural stability | Structural analysis | Offshore drilling | Gravity waves | Foundation design | Gulf of Mexico
