To decrease Europe's harmful emissions, the European Union aims to substantially increase its offshore wind energy capacity. To further develop offshore wind energy, investment in ever-larger construction vessels is necessary. However, this market is characterised by seemingly unpredictable growth of market demand, turbine capacity and...

Service Operation Vessels (SOVs) are purpose-built maintenance vessels that provide high accessibility to far-offshore wind turbines, but they lack multitasking capabilities. Its daughter craft (DC) is a valu-able asset for unplanned maintenance in the summer when it can operate safely, but it is often not deployable during rough weather...

This paper examines the performance of 6 stiffened ship panel designs in different operational profiles. The main question of interest is: which sea states will lead to the worst panel performances in terms of reliability? As stiffened panel collapse is governed by combined lateral and in-plane loading effects (non-linear functions of the...

Response-conditioning wave techniques are a rational way to link wave excitation environments with return-period extreme loading responses. By retaining the wave excitation which leads to a design response, these techniques can also define extreme combined loading scenarios. For complex or novel hull forms, combined loading may be relevant...

Evaluating marine system reliability requires considering the interaction of a limit state with the stochastic ocean excitation. Given a range of operational profiles, a relevant question is which sea states lead to the worst-case system responses, considering the effects of short and long-term variability. If the identified subset of...

This paper proposes a parametric modelling method based on Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) for an LNG bunkering vessel (LNGBV). Parametric models aim to define the geometry and main systems configuration of the vessel starting from the principle that the vessel should be able to perform its mission successfully. The adoption of KBE in...

Naval ships are designed to operate and survive in hostile environments. As such, vulnerability reduction is a major topic of interest during the design of a naval ship. For modern naval ships the vulnerability is largely determined by the design and layout of distributed systems. The vulnerability of these systems needs to be assessed early on,...

Vulnerability reduction is an important topic during the design of naval ships because they are designed to operate in hostile environments and because their on-board distributed systems are becoming increasingly complex. The vulnerability needs to be addressed in the early design stages already, in order to prevent expensive or time...

This paper presents a multi-criteria decision-making approach for the selection of a sustainable product-package design, accounting for the different actors within a food supply chain. The study extends the focus of sustainable packaging design to the collective of all supply chain actors. Decision criteria are identified via a literature...

This paper introduces a novel technique to design the level of service (LOS) for facilities or sub spaces of buildings for the purpose of evacuation planning. LOS is a standard qualitative indicator used to describe flow characteristics in a pedestrian environment. Some evacuation planners use LOS to help determine the network parameters when...

Naval ships are designed to operate in a hostile environment. As such, vulnerability is an important aspect that needs to be assessed during the design. With the increased interest in electrification and automation on board naval ships, the vulnerability of distributed systems has become a major topic of interest. However, assessing this is...

In order to investigate to which extent naval ships can execute their operational scenario after damage, an early stage assessment of the vulnerability of distributed systems needs to be carried out. Such assessments are currently mostly done by evaluating the performance of predefined concepts. However, such an approach does not necessarily...

A Monte Carlo approach to the ship-centric Markov decision process (SC-MDP) is presented for analyzing whether a container ship should convert to LNG power in the face of evolving Emission Control Area regulations. The SC-MDP model was originally developed as a means to analyze uncertain, sequential decision making problems. However, the...

An early-stage design model is presented that estimates personnel locations on board a vessel during times of evacuation. This model takes into account various levels of uncertainty and pain that individuals may feel while heading toward safety, while simultaneously not requiring highly detailed information regarding the vessel layout. This...
