New from Knovel -- Advanced Series on Ocean Engineering, Volume 21: Waves and Wave Forces on Coastal and Ocean Structures
Discusses the subject of wave/current flow around a cylinder, the forces induced on the cylinder by the flow, and the vibration pattern of slender structures in a marine environment. Describes the flow pattern and the resulting load which develops when waves or current meet a cylinder. The development in the forces is related to the various flow patterns and is discussed in detail. Regular as well as irregular waves are considered, and special cases like wall proximities (pipelines) are also investigated.
