Interdisciplinary Aspects of Offshore Structures
Abstract:While some institutions treat Ocean Engineering as a single discipline, much of the progress in this area has been brought about by the interdisciplinary collaboration of experts in different areas, such as:
Structural engineering Mineral resources
Ocean energy Offshore economic potential
Remotely operated vehicles Marine law & policy
Dynamic positioning Marine education
Moorings Marine materials
Seafloor engineering Physical oceanography/meteorology
Large offshore platforms are usually designed by teams of engineers. Although the lead engineer often may be a structural engineer, many elements of the other technologies are involved. This paper is an update to earlier summaries by Marshall (1980, 1993), but retains many of the pre-Internet classic references. Papers from the Offshore Technology Conference are listed separately, and cited by OTC number.
