This is the fifth volume in a series of publications containing classic papers from the early years of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), the world s leading event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of exploration, drilling, production, and environmental protection. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), through its participation in and support of the OTC, plays a major role in the innovation and evolution of the technologies needed to overcome the challenges facing development of resources in the offshore environment. The years since the first OTC Conference in 1969 have seen the presentation of over 10, 000 papers in the various technical disciplines central to offshore development. A few of the civil engineering papers, presented throughout OTC s history, provided innovation in, vision for and lasting impact on the design, construction, or installation of offshore infrastructure. Many have been adopted by design standards worldwide or became an integral part of design software. Some have had influence far beyond the offshore industry, and some have become integral to the design process of onshore structures such as buildings and bridges. Offshore Technology in Civil Engineering: Hall of Fame Papers from the Early Years; Volume Five is a collection of the eight winning papers inducted in 2010 at an award ceremony during OTC in May of 2010. The engineering methods published in these papers have proven their value through widespread use, permeating codes, standards, guidelines, and engineering software.OFFSHORE TECHNOLOGY IN CIVIL ENGINEERING Hall of Fame Award Papers 2006 Award Papers a Volume One Paper Number 1006 (1969) J.D.
