Offshore Geotechnical Engineering


With activity in the engineering of offshore structures increasing around the world, Offshore geotechnical engineering offers a timely introduction to many of the core design and assessment skills required of those working in the sector, in accordance with the latest codes and standards.

All major aspects of the subject are covered in depth, including offshore site investigation, surveys, soil mechanics, jackups, jacket platforms, gravity platforms, pipelines, artificial islands, wind turbine support structures, and deepwater solutions. The author provides extensive practical guidance on the assessment of geohazards and site-specific soils data, and on how this is applied to the design, installation, maintenance, and eventual de-commissioning of offshore structures and their foundations.

Through the use of real examples and case studies, the reader is provided with the knowledge to:

• identify the principal geotechnical issues for offshore developments
• prepare for common challenges of offshore geotechnical engineering
• design a programme of offshore investigations
• carry out and manage design calculations

The first book to offer this information in a single place, Offshore geotechnical engineering is a comprehensive resource that will appeal to a broad spectrum of sectors – as a structured basic training for those entering the field, a comprehensive introductory text for students and lecturers, and a highly useful reference for those already working in offshore geotechnical engineering.
