Limited-Time Offer: Up to 75% Off Coursera Plus!
7000+ certificate courses from Google, Microsoft, IBM, and many more.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: Any interested learners.

COURSE OUTLINE: The course will give a brief overview of different types of ocean structures that are deployed in the sea for exploiting oil, gas, and minerals. While fundamentals of structural dynamics are discussed, detailed mathematical modeling of ocean structures and their dynamic analysis under waves, wind, and current are highlighted with special emphasis on fluid-structure interaction. Introduction to stochastic dynamics of ocean structures is also discussed with a lot of tutorials and sample papers that shall intuit self-learning through the course. The focus is on the explanation of fundamental concepts as addressed to graduate students.

ABOUT INSTRUCTOR: Prof. Srinivasan Chandrasekaran is an Assistant Professor of Ocean Engineering Department, IIT Madras.
