Kouka, A. (author)
Project Code: OE54015, OE54030. The potential of offshore wind is enormous. The wind resource offshore is generally much greater than onshore, especially at bigger water depths. Expanding prudently into the sea leads to bigger support structures for the wind turbine. Therefore, the need for optimized designs, which will establish the wind energy...

An ever-increasing demand for electricity pushes the wind energy industry to deep waters that favor floating concepts. Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) failed for onshore applications in the 1980s, but its advantages raise the potential for competitive floating designs and ultimately lowering the cost of energy. This thesis aims to (1) better...

In the offshore oil and gas industry, production takes place at more and more remote locations, with Floating Production Storage Offloading units (FPSO’s) often being selected for field development. These units may remain on station during their entire lifetime while operating under adverse weather conditions. Inspections, which have to be...

Identifying unknown forces and system parameters belongs to the field of force and system identification. A specific area of this field is concerned with performing this identification based on physical models and measurable response data. The physical model which is used for this so called model-based identification has to resemble the...

Skandali, D. (author)
Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) operates several crane vessels, barges and tug boats for the transportation, the installation and the removal of offshore facilities. To achieve safe and successful projects, the accurate prediction of vessel motions is of great importance. Vessel motions are calculated on the basis of wave energy spectra and...

Van Dijk, S.A. (author)
The resistance of buildings to static loads is very well defined and regulated in codes compared with the resistance to dynamic loads. However in particular for high-rise buildings the resistance to dynamic loading is of great importance for the design and much less defined. The magnitude of vibrations depends on mass, stiffness and damping...

Further advancements in the offshore wind industry, which come with the use of larger wind turbines at deeper water, require larger support structures. For shallow and intermediate water depths, monopile foundations still remain the most widely-used and cost-effective support structure due to the relative simplicity of fabrication and...

Ziegler, L.S. (author)
Offshore wind energy faces three important trends: (1) wind farms grow in size, (2) monopiles are installed in deeper water, and (3) cost reduction remains the most important challenge. With wind farm size, the importance of variations in environmental site conditions across the wind farm increases. These site variations, e.g. water depth and...

Labib, D.A. (author)
This master thesis is about finite element analyses of a 3D model of a 1/4th scaled trapezoidal 3-story reinforced concrete mock-up on a shaking table which is part of Smart 2013 international benchmark. The idea of this benchmark is to asses and predict the dynamic behavior of the reinforced concrete mock-up with respect to seismic loading...
