Dr Subrata K Chakrabarti, President of Offshore Structure Analysis Inc, US visited WIT to present a one-day course entitled ‘Theory and Practice of Riser and Mooring Dynamics’
Lectures were presented on the following topics:
The course had two main objectives:
- To provide a basic understanding of the hydrodynamic design of moorings and risers with particular emphasis to their application.
- To offer experience with the actual design analysis, model tests and field application.
Dr. Subrata K. Chakrabarti is the President of Offshore Structure Analysis Inc. and the past Director of Marine Research Division of Chicago Bridge & Iron Company. He has more than 35 years’ experience in offshore structure design and analysis and has been involved in the development of many offshore production structures. He has published over 180 technical papers and has written four textbooks. His fourth textbook “Theory & Practice of Hydrodynamics and Vibration” will form the basis for this course. Selected materials from his other books "Hydrodynamics of Offshore Structures" "Offshore Structure Modeling”, and “Handbook in Offshore Engineering" (Editor), were also included in the course.
