About the Authors
  • Opening with recent advances in both the theoretical and physical models for wave-seabed-structure interactions, this book provides an updated look at the mathematics behind the interactions between sea, soil and man-made structures. The main models are broken down into key equations, and their strengths and challenges are discussed. These models are then placed in context with industry-relevant examples, in both two and three dimensions. From seabed instability around offshore wind turbines, to soil conditions in response to the laying of submarine pipelines, this book takes a comprehensive look at a variety of wave-seabed-structure interactions. With important implications for the future of offshore infrastructure, this is an ideal resource for industry workers, undergraduate students, and researchers.

    • Focuses on integrated wave and seabed models, and marine infrastructures, in 2D and 3D
    • Providing detailed descriptions of industry-relevant implications of soil instability due to marine infrastructure, the book is a vital resource for anyone in the geotechnical engineering field
    • Includes updated and integrated models for seabed-structure interactions and the compiling effects of wave action, providing an easy basis for research
