This work reports on experiments that were performed with a freely vibrating cylinder exposed to currents and placed near a plane boundary parallel to the cylinder axis. It is observed that the proximity of the boundary affects the vertical response of the cylinder in two ways: (i) for gaps between 0.75 and 2 diameters (D), the amplitude of...

The sea ice interaction with a structure may cause system changes and affect the feasibility of common approaches to track modal parameters. In this paper, a covariance-driven stochastic subspace identification method is used to identify the natural frequencies from 190 time series of ice actions against a lighthouse structure. The results...

This paper presents a verification of a state-of-the-art joint input-state estimation algorithm using data obtained from in situ experiments on a footbridge. A dynamic model of the footbridge is based on <br/>a detailed finite element model that is calibrated using a set of experimental modal characteristics. The joint input-state estimation...

Quasi-periodic loading resulting from waves and a rotationally sampled wind field often leads to fatiguedriven designs for offshore wind turbine support structures. The uncertainty on wind and wave loading, together with large modelling uncertainties, lead to large discrepancies between the observed and predicted dynamic behaviour of these...

For reliable structural health monitoring and possible lifetime extension of offshore wind turbine support structures, accurate predictions of the response of these structures at all critical locations are required. Response predictions in offshore wind applications are, however, affected by large uncertainties on environmental (wind/wave...

The Norwegian Public Roads Administration is reviewing the possibility of using floating bridges as fjord crossings. The dynamic behaviour of very long floating bridges with novel designs are prone to uncertainties. Studying the dynamic behaviour of existing bridges is valuable for understanding the in-situ performance. We present a case...

The design for fatigue for offshore wind turbine structures is characterized by uncertainty, resulting from both loading specifications and numerical modelling. At the same time, fatigue is a main design driver for this type of structures. This study presents a strategy to monitor the accumulated fatigue damage in real-time, employing a joint...

Support structures of offshore wind turbines are prone to failure from fatigue damage. The design for fatigue requires accurate predictions of the environmental conditions and an adequate definition of the structural properties, valid for the entire design life-time. Estimates of the accumulated fatigue damage are, however, characterized by a...

The level-ice forces exerted on a scale model of a compliant bottom founded structure are identified from noncollocated strain and acceleration measurements by means of a joint input-state estimation algorithm. The identification is performed based on two different finite element models: one entirely based on the blueprints of the structure, and...

An existing joint input-state estimation algorithm is extended for applications in structural dynamics. The estimation of the input and the system states is performed in a minimum-variance unbiased way, based on a limited number of response measurements and a system model. An additional method is proposed to identify the noise statistics, which...

To circumvent current industry problems related to the settling of grouted connections, a steel-to-steel or slip joint connection is proposed for fitting a transition piece onto an installed monopile foundation. In the first part of this contribution, a simplified dynamic analysis of the installation of such a joint is considered. Assuming...
