This is an introduction to the basic theory of ocean waves and their interaction with offshore structures. It focuses on the kinds of large scale waves which are important in Offshore Engineering.

The pages in this category are based on the MIT open courseware notes written by Paul Sclavounos. They can be read in order as a basic course on hydrodynamics.
