Title of the thesis:
Hydroelastic analysis of very large floating structures
1. Introduction.
2. General theory.
3. Semi-infinite plate & strip.
4. Circular plate.
5. Ring-shaped plate.
6. Quarter-infinite plate.
7. Plate of finite draft.
8. Conclusions.
In Chapters 3-7 the particular problems of the interaction of water waves with floating elastic plate are studied for mentioned horizontal planforms of the plate.
Thesis keywords (general): diffraction, dispersion relation, elastic plate, fluid-structure interaction, free-surface elevation, hydroelastic analysis, hydroelastic response, incident surface waves, initiated wave pattern, integro-differential equation, offshore structure, plate deflection, plate-water interaction, reflection, transmission, very large floating platform (VLFP), very large floating structure (VLFS), water depth.
Manuscript has been sent to the committee on 26th May 2005.
