Groundbreaking and comprizing articles by expert contributors, this volume provides a comprehensive treatment of VLFSs and their relationship with the sea, marine habitats, the pollution of costal waters and tidal and natural current flow.

It looks in-depth at:

  • VLFS and the colonization of ocean space with their appearance in the waters off developed coastal cities
  • wave properties, which is essential for estimating the loading on the VLFS as well as for modelling structure-fluid interactions
  • hydroelastic and structural analysis of VLFS at an overall level and the cell level
  • the analysis and design of breakwaters
  • simulation models to understand the actual flow of water through the VLFS and to determine the drift forces for the mooring systems
  • anti-corrosion and maintenance systems
  • new research and developments, with emphasis on the Mega-Float, a 1 km long floating test runway.

Well-illustrated with photographs, drawings, equations for mathematical modelling and analysis and extensively referenced, Very Large Floating Structures is ideal for professionals, academics and students of civil and structural engineering.
