Marine structures

Overview of themes

The prime objects we will study here are the effects of sea-loads on marine structures. This page is divided into three main topics:

Structural components
In order to design marine stuctures to withstand these loads, it is necessary to have a good knowledge of the different structural components and how they can take up loads.

Structural Analysis
There are several methods for marine stuctural analysis, both analytical and numerical. The most important of them are presented here.
More

Structural design criterias
From the analysis we can then control if the designed structure will have sufficient capacity by evaluating the different design criterias.

A good designer must hence be familiar with all these topics.
