About this book


This book presents a comprehensive topical overview on soil dynamics and foundation modeling in offshore and earthquake engineering. The spectrum of topics include, but is not limited to, soil behavior, soil dynamics, earthquake site response analysis, soil liquefactions, as well as the modeling and assessment of shallow and deep foundations. The author provides the reader with both theory and practical applications, and thoroughly links the methodological approaches with engineering applications. The book also contains cutting-edge developments in offshore foundation engineering such as anchor piles, suction piles, pile torsion modeling, soil ageing effects and scour estimation. The target audience primarily comprises research experts and practitioners in the field of offshore engineering, but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students.

Dr. Junbo Jia is an engineering expert at Aker Solutions, Norway. He has extensive experience on marine structural assessment accounting for dynamics and nonlinearity, earthquake engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydrodynamic analysis, structural wind engineering and engineering designs of marine structures. He has been extensively involved in analyses and designs in offshore and energy industries, associated with different types of offshore and onshore structures and foundations. He is currently a committee member of ISO TC67/SC7 Offshore Structures and an invited expert group member of Eurocode 3. He has been invited as guest professor and key speaker by various organizations and research institutes. Dr. Junbo Jia has received several national and international awards such as the Vice Admiral E.L. Cochrane award from the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) and the Best Paper Award from the journal Ships and Offshore Structures. He is the sole author of three comprehensive scientific monographs by Springer. All the three books receive an extensive amount of downloads based on Springer official data. He is also the editor of a book volume by CRC press (with J.K. Paik). He is listed in several global versions of the Who's Who publications. Dr. Jia is an elected member of Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences.
