An International Journal

China Ocean Engineering


Sponsored by Chinese Ocean Engineering Society, edited by Nanjing Hydraulic Research Institute, and published by China Ocean Press, China Ocean Engineering started publication in 1987. The Journal is a comprehensive academic biomonthly in English (ISSN 0890-5487).

China Ocean Engineering takes as its prime function the introduction to advances in research concepts, experiments, technology, materials and structures, etc., related to ocean engineering, especially advances in China.

The Journal is concerned with all engineering aspects involved in the exploration and utilization of ocean resources, such as offshore engineering, dive and salvage, utilization of marine energy resources, protection of ocean environment and underwater technology.

Topics regularly covered include design and construction of structures (including platforms, breakwaters, wharves, dikes and mooring systems), instrumentation/testing (physical model and numerical model), structural material, structural/stress analysis, soil mechanics, sedimentation, and wave dynamics.

The Journal will devote itself to strengthening academic exchanges, promoting cooperation in science and technology, and making valuable contributions to the progress in ocean engineering and the development and utilization of marine resources worldwide.

The Journal China Ocean Engineering was distributed by Pergamon Journals Limited from 1987 to 1993, and has been distributed by Springer since 2011 . Free sample copies are distributed to the libraries of eminent universities, and design, research, and construction establishments.
