Offshore Structures

Scope and Content

This series contains papers relating to Rowe's theoretical and experimental research into offshore platforms and structures, primarily for the North Sea oil and gas industry. Much of the research involved the use of the large centrifuge at the University of Manchester (for which see PWR/5/4). Although the research was undertaken under the auspices of the University, inevitably there was some overlap with Rowe's commercial consultancy work on offshore structures, documented in PWR/4/4. There is also information on the testing of caissons for the Oosterschelde Storm Barrier in the Netherlands.


This series comprises two original subseries of box files, which have been retained as PWR/5/5/1 and PWR/5/5/2, followed by a third subseries of loose papers, PWR/5/5.
