Contributor Metrikine, A.V. (mentor) Paap, M. (mentor) Van der Toorn, A. (mentor) Hoving, J.S. (mentor) Faculty Civil Engineering and Geosciences Department Hydraulic Engineering Programme Hydraulic Structures Date 2015-06-10 Abstract The Ampelmann system consists of a motion compensating Stewart platform and a telescoping connection bridge, a gangway. The gangway creates a large asymmetric load case on top of the Stewart platform. The purpose of this study is to make the A-type operable for larger gangways by investigating the possibilities to reduce the cylinder forces by improving the Stewart platform for the large asymmetric load case.
