Purpose and Scope:

One of the premier international publications in the field of offshore and ocean-related engineering, the Journal of Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering disseminates the current state-of-the-art and research activities. The Journal covers the current and future technologies of many innovative offshore, arctic, and naval structures. Its peer-reviewed Research Papers cover topics in the general area of offshore mechanics, arctic, and ocean engineering, including: ocean waves and associated statistics; design of offshore structures; fluid-structure interaction; floating production systems; offshore material performance and applications; corrosion protection and control; offshore structures and ships in ice; soil-pipeline interaction; risk analysis; ocean space utilization; ocean energy technology; dynamics of structures; ship motions, risers and moorings and cable dynamics; fatigue and fracture reliability and control; welding and NDT technology; offshore pipelines; offshore safety and reliability; and sub-sea technology.

The Journal emphasizes the fundamental and discussion mechanics of topics, rather than the applications and case histories, even though few of the noteworthy installations are covered from time to time. The Journal also tries to document significant developments in a related field or major accomplishments of a renowned scientist by programming themed issues to record these events.
