This book is idented for three groups: students and professors of structural and ocean engineering, engineers and scientists in academic institutions, goverment laboratories, and inductries involved in research on offshore installations , espetically fluid structure soil interaction, and practicing professional engineers who considers conceptual design and need to employ dynamic analysis to evaluate facilities contructed offshore
The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) is
one of the most important multilateral conventions in history. Adopted
in 1982, and effectively completed in 1994 with a revision of Part XI on
Deep Seabed Mining, the Convention is today in force for 160 nations
plus the European Union. In its 17 parts encompassing 320 articles
with nine annexes (and Final Act with six annexes) the Convention is
the authoritative contemporary basis for the law of the sea.

Every year, there are a number of accidents from using work equipment,
including machinery. Many are serious and some are fatal.
This leaflet gives simple, practical advice on what you can do to eliminate or
reduce the risks from work equipment. It covers all workplaces and
situations where the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 applies,
including offshore installations. It is mainly for those who have responsibility
(directly or indirectly) for work equipment and how it is used.
The 1990s saw a resurgence in the windpower industry, with installed
grid-connected capacity expanding more than five-fold between 1990 and 2000. Most
of this increase occurred in Europe, where governmental policies aimed at developing
domestic energy supplies and reducing pollutant emissions provided a sheltered market
for renewable energy generation. The 1990s were also marked by a return to large,
megawatt-sized wind turbines, a reduction and consolidation of wind turbine manufacturers,
and increased interest in offshore windpower....
The fact that electric arc could operate was known for over a 100 years. The first ever underwater welding was carried out by British Admiralty – Dockyard for sealing leaking ship rivets below the water line. Underwater welding is an important tool for underwater fabrication works. In 1946, special waterproof electrodes were developed in Holland by ‘Van der Willingen’. In recent years the number of offshore structures including oil drilling rigs, pipelines, platforms are being installed significantly.
