Abstract:

Two concrete floating structures study projects representative of future developments in the field are described. The first is a power plant concept feasible in the near term. The second is a more futuristic, very large floating structure in the form of a floating airport, several orders of magnitude larger than any structures presently afloat. Both structures are within the state of the art in terms of design and construction, their size alone being the only "new frontier'. Special features and proposed construction procedures are described.

    Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
