One of the most commonly used seismic analysis methods, over the last few decades is the equivalent lateral force method. This procedure, which was initially intended for elastic design of structures, has been extended to inelastic design, with the incorporation of the behaviour factor q or with the integration of response spectrum procedures...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion is a relatively new renewable energy technology, aiming at producing electricity by combining deep cool sea water with tropical warm surface water. One of the biggest technical challenge for offshore OTEC plants is represented by the installation and deployment of the cold-water pipe, which is required to bring...

It is a well known fact that the international dredging industry is of major importance. As the dredging industry has made a significant contribution to the development of many world economies through the construction and maintenance of harbors, canals, and waterways. The construction and maintenance of waterways depths is a continuous process...

Offshore wind is a fast growing industry that has the potential to play an increasing role in the near future of power generation. As the industry evolves, wind farms are constructed further offshore where the wind is less turbulent and more space is available to increase the size of the wind farms. Furthermore, the capacity and size of wind...

Offshore wind turbines are exposed to complex irregular and highly fluctuating environmental conditions. The analysis is, therefore commonly performed in the time domain, resulting in a time consuming and computationally demanding optimization process. In order to reduce the computational cost, an optimization approach using the principle of...

The Smit sawing wire system was used in the salvage operation of the Baltic Ace. The sawing wire was drilled underneath the wreck and connected to two barges on opposite sides. Winches were placed on the barges to make a controlled cut through the wreck by pulling the sawing wire back and forth. The cut was made in an upward direction. While the...

The aim of this work is to study the performance of the selected wake oscillator model in predicting the vortex-induced vibrations (VIV) response of a free-hanging vertical riser subjected to certain imposed harmonic oscillations at the top. This model is a simplification of the situations commonly found in offshore industries when a marine...

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...

First Year Ice ridge loads are often the design loads for offshore structures in Arctic regions. Based on the field observation data for Confederation bridge, the calculated upper limit for the ice ridge loads according to ISO 19906 Standard were quite high when compared to the measured loads. There is a need to obtain an improved description of...

This thesis analyses the loads that occurred during an ice ridge ramming experiment with the icebreaker Oden. Sea ice ridges are formed due to breaking and deformation of the ice cover. Wind, current, thermal expansion and Coriolis forces induce compression and shear forces onto level ice which can break the ice into rubble. The blocks of ice...

The investigation into the dynamic behavior of a cable during installation was done with the aim of improving cable installation for safety, operational and commercial value. In order to increase the operational limit of the vessel during cable installation, the investigation into improvement systems was desired. The workability of a vessel...

When a shipwreck lies in an undesirable place it can be lifted out of the water or moved to larger water depths(scuttling). Commonly used methods for this procedure are the use of floating sheerlegs, crane ships or chain pullers. Floating sheerlegs and crane ships can be used for lifting the shipwreck through the water column, where chain...

In pursuit of saving mother nature, man has been extending his boundaries to find renewable sources of energy. Wind being one of them, has been exploited in the past years with offshore wind gaining high popularity in the recent years. Owing to the high capital costs of the offshore wind sector, research has been directed to focus on technology...

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...
