Current offshore wind turbine installation and positioning methods require mechanical equipment attached on the lifted components and human intervention. The present paper studies the development of a contactless motion compensation technique by investigating a magnetically controlled pendulum. The technique involves the interaction of a...

Gentle Driving of Piles (GDP) is a new technology for the vibratory installation of tubular (mono)piles. Its founding principle is that both efficient installation and low noise emission can be achieved by applying to the pile a combination of axial and torsional vibrations. Preliminary development and demonstration of the proposed technology...

This paper presents a computationally efficient model for vibratory pile installation. A semi-analytical finite element (SAFE) model for thin cylindrical shells is derived to represent the pile. The linear dynamic response of the soil medium is described by means of Green's functions via the Thin-Layer Method (TLM) coupled with Perfectly...

The growing interest in offshore wind leads to an increasing number of wind farms planned to be constructed in the coming years. Installation of these piles often causes high underwater noise levels that harm aquatic life. State-of-the-art models have problems predicting the noise and seabed vibrations from vibratory pile driving. A significant...

This paper studies the effectiveness of adding auxiliary rails as a mitigation measure for degradation in transition zones of railway tracks. More specifically, it investigates the settlement mechanisms counteracted by the additional rails. Results show that when the system’s response is in the quasi-static regime, adding auxiliary rails over...

The present study introduces a modified version of PD Control for the<br/>case of a magnetically controlled pendulum. The response was observed in both<br/>experimental and numerical simulations taking into consideration the non-linearity posed by the system. The modified PD controller was compared to the simple counterpart for further concrete...

An experiment has been performed on a magnetic pendulum, which interacts with an electromagnet. The free non-linear vibrations of the pendulum-magnet system are studied to identify and analyse the system’s characteristics. Due to the presence of the electromagnet, a modulation of the pendulum’s natural frequency is observed. A mathematical model...

This paper presents a semi-analytical solution for the 3D problem of a cylindrical tunnel embedded in an elastic half-space subject to plane harmonic compressional and shear waves. Both the tunnel and soil are modelled as an elastic continuum. Conformal mapping is employed to transform the original physical domain with boundary surfaces of two...

Utilization of Boundary Element Method (BEM) based on linear potential flow for modelling Oscillating Water Column (OWC) devices has gained popularity in the last two decades. The commercial BEM solver WAMIT has been used widely for modelling OWCs and validated using experimental modelling (Delauré et. al. 2003, Bingham et. al. 2015, Faÿ 2020)....

Climate change is expected to have an impact on wind patterns, and therefore the generation of waves. Phase 6 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6), provides various realization of outputs integrated global coupled models for different centuries. Wind quality is a cornerstone for wave energy as it is the primary generation driver...

Gentle driving of piles (GDP) is a new technology for the vibratory installation of tubular (mono) piles that aims to achieve both efficient installation and low noise emission by combining axial and torsional vibrations. To provide a preliminary demonstration of the GDP concept, onshore medium-scale tests in sand were performed in late 2019...

Gentle Driving of Piles (GDP) is a new vibratory installation technology for tubular (mono)piles. It is characterized by the simultaneous application of low-frequency axial and high-frequency torsional vibrations, envisaged to achieve both high installation performance and reduced underwater noise emissions. The concept of GDP has been...

In this paper, the characteristics of the induced ground motion are studied for two pile installation methods. Specifically, the classical axial vibratory driving is compared with the Gentle Driving of Piles (GDP) method, to investigate the effect of high-frequency torsional excitation in the soil response. For that purpose, a non-linear 3-D...

ransition zones in railway tracks experience strong amplification of stress and strain fields due to the passage of train over inhomogeneity. The inhomogeneity in these zones can be attributed to changes in mechanical properties of material along the longitudinal direction of the track, and to displacement/traction discontinuities at interfaces...

For offshore wind turbines (OWTs), the monopile comprises the most common type of foundation and vibratory driving is one of the main techniques for monopile installation (and decommissioning). In practice, prior to pile installation, a pile driving analysis is performed to select the appropriate installation device and the relevant settings....

To study the irreversible changes in the magnetic stray field surrounding a steel structure caused by impact-induced elastic and plastic deformations, a steel cylinder was repeatedly subjected to axial impacts of various magnitudes. Due to impacts that induce elastic deformation, the measured magnetic stray field of the structure converges to...

This paper presents a computationally efficient mode-matching method to predict the relative axial motion of two elastic rods in frictional contact. The motion is of the stick-slip type and is non-uniform along the rods. The proposed method utilizes the piecewise linearity of the problem in time and space. The original set of nonlinear...
