Abstract

A. The objective of this section of the course will be to define, develop and illustrate the relationship between offshore geological processes and design applications, especially hazards. The relationship will emphasize quantitative rather than qualitative procedures and the use of geotechnical engineering principles.

B. Notes have been prepared in an open format to facilitate annotation. Details and additional information presented in the lectures can be added to the notes. Appendices are included in this chapter which provides more detailed discussion of principles than is possible in the limited time available in the short course. These appendices include references for those interested in developing the subject in more depth.

C. The geotechnical engineering link between offshore processes and hazards should be developed within the context of actual field situtations. A limited number of case studies will be presented and discussed in this section of the course however, there is an obvious tie to other parts of the course, particularly the sections by Bouma and Dunlap. Discussion during these sections, as well as during the free periods and evenings, will help to develop this dimension of the subject.
