About this book
This book discusses the subject of wave/current flow around a cylinder, the forces induced on the cylinder by the flow, and the vibration pattern of slender structures in a marine environment.
The primary aim of the book is to describe the flow pattern and the resulting load which develops when waves or current meet a cylinder. Special attention is paid to circular cylinder. The development in the forces is related to the various flow patterns and is discussed in detail. Regular as well as irregular waves are considered, and special cases like wall proximities (pipelines) are also investigated.
The previous edition of this book was volume 12 of the series; this revised edition is volume 26.

B Mutlu Sumer is Professor at the Technical University of Denmark, MEK, Coastal, Maritime and Structural Engineering Section (formerly ISVA, Institute of Hydrodynamics and Water Resources). He graduated with MSc and PhD at the Istanbul Technical University (ITU). He was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Cambridge, UK. He was professor of Hydraulics at ITU before he moved to Denmark in 1984. His main fields of research are flow around marine structures, scour, sediment transport and liquefaction of marine soils. He has done consultancy work for consulting companies in Denmark and abroad.
