Vortex-induced vibration (VIV) is awell-known phenomenon for civil and offshore structures. Currently, the prediction of this type of vibration in practice currently mainly relies on the force-decomposition method. However, the limitations of this method have restricted the applicability of the method, and alternative models are therefore needed...

Buildings are becoming taller, lighter, slenderer. These changing characteristics make tall buildings more sensitive to environmental loads, including wind gusts. A building is considered "tall" when its height and slenderness influence the design. Given the demand of improving building performance, the serviceability limit state (SLS) has...

To study interaction between ice and sloping structures, numerical models are required that can predict failure of the ice based on physical ice properties, deformations and structural shape and size. An important element of these models is the set of failure criteria that is applied, as failure limits the loading of the ice on the structure....

Offshore wind generated electricity is currently one of the most promising sources of energy to contribute in creating a sustainable global energy mix. The latter is essential for minimising the detrimental impact of human-induced accelerated climate change. The cost of offshore wind power has strongly decreased over the past years due to ...

The majority of existing offshore wind turbines typically consist of a monopile foundation, a transition piece with a vertically positioned grouted connection, a turbine tower, and a turbine. Of the 2,653 offshore turbines that were installed by the end of 2015, 80 percent are supported by a monopile.
Despite the current overwhelming...

Jarquin Laguna, A. (author)
The work presented in this thesis explores a new way of generation, collection and transmission of wind energy inside a wind farm, in which the electrical conversion does not occur during any intermediate conversion step before the energy has reached the offshore central platform. A centralized approach for electricity generation is considered...

Hendrikse, H. (author)
Offshore developments in ice-covered waters, such as the Arctic Ocean or Baltic Sea, have received increasing attention from the petroleum and wind power industries over the past decade. Sustainable developments in such waters can contribute to a balanced energy future provided that the deployed offshore structures are designed to be safe. The...
