OFFSHORE SOIL MECHANICS
This book was written as class notes for the course on ”Offshore Soil Mechanics”
of the Department of Civil Engineering of the Delft University
of Technology, as given until 2002.
In the latest version, which is published on the internet, the format
of the pages has been changed to the landscape shape, some figures
have been improved by adding color, and multi-line formulas have been reduced
to a single line, profiting from the wider page format. Also two
chapters (on consolidation and waves in piles) have been copied from
the Soil Dynamics book. Some additional material may be included later.
For many problems elementary computer programs
are given, in Turbo Pascal.
These programs may be used, copied and distributed without restriction.
No responsibility for any loss or damage resulting from use of these programs is accepted.
