Offshore Geotechnical Engineering PDF Download Ebook. Mark Randolph gives a quick overview of the marine environment, offshore site investigation methods and interpretation of soil behaviour. It proceeds to cover geotechnical design of piled foundations, shallow foundations and anchoring systems. Three subjects are then covered which require a extra multi-disciplinary approach: the design of cell drilling rigs, pipelines and geohazards.
This book serves as a framework for undergraduate and postgraduate programs, and can attraction to professional engineers specializing within the offshore industry. The structure of this book follows a pattern that mimics the flow of a typical offshore project.
Design practice in offshore geotechnical engineering has grown out of onshore practice, but the two application areas have tended to diverge over the past thirty years, pushed partly by the size of the inspiration and anchoring elements used offshore and partly by fundamental variations in construction and installation techniques. As a consequence offshore geotechnical engineering has grown as a speciality.
Mark Randolph is the founding Director of the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems at the University of Western Australia, a founding Director of the specialist consultancy, Advanced Geomechanics, and a former Rankine Lecturer. Susan Gourvenec is a professor at the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems at the University of Western Australia and delivers undergraduate, postgraduate, and industry courses on offshore geomechanics.
