Advanced series on ocean engineering 26Hydrodynamics around cylindrical strucures [Revised ed]9812700390, 9789812700391

Author : B. Mutlu Sumer, Jorgen Fredsoe
Description:This book 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. The primary aim of the book is to describe the flow pattern and the resulting load which develops when waves or current meet a cylinder. Special attention is paid to circular 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.
