With the increase in need for offshore wind exploitation a research is set up with aims to develop a preliminary design tool. The introduction begins with background information on what role floating wind will play in the offshore wind industry and why this is a relevant topic. A general overview of floaters is presented with a comparison of the...

Continuous development in the wind turbine industry leads to increasing size of wind turbines. Allseas investigates the possibility to enter the offshore wind turbine installation industry with Pioneering Spirit.<br/>For Allseas’ preliminary wind turbine installation design, wind turbines are assembled offshore, requiring wind turbine components...

Perforated monopiles show promise in providing a better alternative to the commonly used jacket-like substructures used in intermediate water depths in the range of 30 to 120 m. By introducing perforations near the vicinity of the splash zone the wave loads on the monopile can be mitigated and the fatigue damage reduced, which is the main...

In contrast to traditional power cables for bottom-founded offshore wind turbines, power cables for floating wind turbines penetrate the water column and are exposed to cyclic loading. Due to the dynamic nature of the cable loading, the cables are prone to fatigue failure. Since the evaluation of the fatigue life of complex structures, like...

Large-scale cultivation of seaweed presents opportunities for multiple global challenges currently at play. Cultivated seaweed can provide a sustainable source of protein for humans and cattle without competing for land, freshwater supply or the use of fertilisers. Kelp forests are known to be a solid basis for an elaborate biome that supports...

This thesis concerns a hydroelastic analysis of a multi-module very large floating structure (VLFS), analysed in the frequency domain. To this end, the fluid-structure interaction is described by a 2D model, where the VLFS is represented by four floating beams interconnected with rotational springs. The fluid is modelled as an ideal fluid, and...

The offshore wind industry in Europe has experienced significant growth in the past decade, with wind farm development mostly focusing on the shallow area's in the North Sea. Naturally, the market is driven to reduce the Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCoE) to become more competitive with fossil fuels and less dependent on government subsidies....

In offshore engineering complex simulation models are constructed for design optimization using Monte Carlo methods. These models incur large computational costs. Multi-Level Multi-Fidelity Monte Carlo is proposed as a method to reduce the computational cost of these simulations. In addition, research is conducted on the use of porous media as...
