Written by two of the foremost experts in international ship design and ocean engineering, this book introduces fundamental theories and methods as well as new content on the behavior of buckling/plastic collapse that help explain analysis like the initial imperfections produced by welding and the ultimate strength of plates, double bottom structures of bulk carriers, and ship and FPSO hull girders in longitudinal bending.
Rounding out with additional coverage on floating structures such as oil and gas platforms and LNG/FLNG structural characteristics, Buckling and Ultimate Strength of Ship and Ship-like Floating Structures is a must-have resource for naval architects and other marine engineering professionals seeking to gain an in-depth understanding of the technological developments in this area.
- Explains how the initial imperfections produced by welding, residual stress, and initial deflection in panels influence the collapse behavior and the compressive ultimate strength of rectangular plates- Evaluates the ultimate strength of plate girders under bending and shearing as well as combined bend/shear loads- Provides fundamental theories, simple formulas, and analytical methods such as Finite Element Method or Smith's Method to simulate and evaluate buckling/plastic collapse behavior and strength of plates under various conditions- Authored by two of the foremost experts in international ship design and ocean engineering- Includes additional coverage on floating structures such as oil and gas platforms

Masahiko Fujikubo is Professor in Structural Integrity Laboratory in Department of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering, Osaka University. He received his BSc, MSc, and PhD in Engineering at Osaka University with a focus on Naval Architecture. After obtaining his master degree, he worked for the Nippon Steel Cooperation as an engineer. He was then employed as research assistant by Hiroshima University. Upon receiving his doctoral degree from Osaka University, he became associate professor in 1989 and professor in 1999. My research area is the ultimate strength of ships and offshore structures. He was involved in the development of very large floating structures (VLFS), such as a floating airport and wrote several books related to the structural strength and design of ships and offshore structures including VFFS.
