About this book

This study covers the basics of the hydrodynamics and vibration of structures subjected to environmental loads. It describes the interaction of hydrodynamics with the associated vibration of structures, giving simple explanations. Emphasis is placed on the applications of the theory to practical problems. Several case studies are provided to show how the theory outlined in the book is applied in the design of structures. Background material needed for understanding fluid-induced vibrations of structures is given to make the work reasonably self-sufficient. Examples are taken mainly from the novel structures that are of interest today, including ocean and offshore structures and components. Besides being a text for undergraduates, this text should serve as a reference for design engineers and consultants involved in the design of structures subjected to dynamics and vibration.

Contents

Basic Theory of Hydrodynamics; Basic Theory of Vibration; Experiments in Hydrodynamics and Vibration; Statistical Theory in Vibration; Random Vibration; Fluid-Structure Interaction; Vortex-Induced Vibration; Practical and Design Studies.
