Ocean structures are unique in design and geometric form apart from the types of environmental loads they are subjected to. In addition to the complexities that arise from their functions and operational conditions, their structural forms are as interesting as they are highly innovative. Similarly, structures that are built for coastal protection have a variety of functional variations with a high degree of common geometric forms. In this chapter, different types of ocean structures that are built to cater to a variety of functional requirements are discussed from a structural engineering perspective. A brief introduction to various terminologies related to oil and gas exploration is also presented.
