Product description


Review of the hardback: '… offers many new ideas in offshore engineering and technology, which could be used to enhance design and operation of maritime systems. … beneficial for both academic researchers and industrial analysts. It serves as a good reference for marine/offshore safety engineers within the industry and as an excellent textbook by undergraduates or postgraduates in marine/offshore engineering subjects. There are several useful sections that briefly introduce the reader to the ship-shaped offshore installations and set the mood by defining the general design and building regimes. For more advanced readers, the technical chapters plunge deep into the root of problems of designing, building and operating ship-shaped offshore installations.' Measurement + Control

Review of the hardback: 'Ship-shaped Offshore Installations is an excellent text and reference book written by recognised marine structural experts who are long-standing members of SNAME. … This book is very timely and sure to become a must-have for professionals involved in offshore work. … [It] is highly recommended and bridges existing gaps in the published works on FPSs. My thanks to the authors for writing a well documented, authoritative book on this complex subject.' SNAME News Gautam J. Adhia

Review of the hardback: 'The book presents an excellent opportunity for engineers and students alike, to appreciate the issues surrounding design, building and operation of ship-shaped offshore installations.

Book Description

Ship-shaped offshore units are economical systems for development of offshore oil and gas fields. These systems are especially attractive in deep and ultra-deep water areas and remote locations away from existing pipeline infrastructures. This 2007 book will interest students as well as designers working on the engineering for ship-shaped offshore installations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book 10 Jan. 2014
By Mesra350 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has been written for structural engineer with great details in limit-state design method(4 chapters) for offshore structure(FPSO).

However, other aspects such as topsides, mooring system, inspection and maintenance, decommissioning, risk assessment and management are also been covered which can be useful non-specialist readers.
