EN245: Principles of Ocean Engineering Systems
EN245: Principles of Ocean Engineering Systems (2-2-3)
This course introduces new ocean engineering (EOE) majors to general problems and design practices in the areas of the ocean environment. A primary focus in the course is the analysis of a floating offshore structure and the design of a small submersible vehicle. Topics in the course include hydrostatics, stability, and solid model design. The course emphasizes the use of laboratory experiments, Excel spreadsheets, and computer-aided design (CAD).
