Floating Production, Storage & Offloading (FPSO) units are extensively utilized in remote offshore areas for deep water developments where a pipeline infrastructure is not an economically viable solution. Traditionally, FPSOs are converted from oil tankers, which entails that they are not equipped with an appropriate mooring system. A spread...

Flooding is the most common and one of the most damaging natural hazards globally. It has severe societal, economic and environmental consequences. Damages from floods are expected to worsen with changing climate and increasing population andwealthworldwide. Within the last decades, advances in computational power and increases in the number of...

The main objective of this study is the realisation of a computer tool. The function of the tool is to estimate the required dimensions and quantities of essential container, dry and liquid bulk terminal elements, in an early design phase. As well as to give an estimate of the construction costs of these marine terminals. Terminal element...

This research investigates approaches to conduct an efficient sensitivity analysis of wave forcing in coastal erosion studies. For this three speed-accuracy trade-offs have been assessed: (i) between the use of a simple and a complex model, (ii) between the use of several methods for conducting a sensitivity analysis, and (iii) between the use...

The Belgian Meuse is a river with a relatively low flood risk. The floodplains are narrow, and the estimated impact is not large until the flood reaches a magnitude of a once in a 200 years event. Flooding along the Belgian Meuse could however have an effect on the flood safety in the Netherlands, since there the flood defences are dimensioned...

A marine operations encounters downtime if its operational limit is exceeded during project execution. Accurate information about the expected downtime during a marine project is important information in the tender phase of such a project. The purpose of this thesis is therefore to give insight in the available methods for downtime analysis in...

Dockwise started in 2008 with the OCTOPUS motion monitoring and captain decision support system for performance optimization and bad weather routing capacity. The OCTOPUS-Onboard system gathers weather and motion data, which is collected in the OCTOPUS database. This database includes the encountered weather data and the measured accelerations...

During the past years a lot of attention has been drawn towards the development of renewables, due to the expected depletion of fossil fuels and political decisions. Offshore wind energy is considered as one of the most promising renewable energy sources, however the cost of offshore wind farms have not yet reached competitive levels. Hence...

At the moment, for determining the safety of the dike ring areas around the IJsselmeer a possible failure of the Afsluitdijk is assumed to have no influence on loads occurring on the IJsselmeer dikes. As failure of the Afsluitdijk is always possible, the consequences of such a failure should be investigated. The objective of this thesis is to...

Design water levels are a basic concept in flood risk management practice. These water levels with a specified return period are used for the design of dikes and other flood protection measures along the river Meuse. Current practice is that these water levels are determined by hydrodynamic simulation of a standard design hydrograph at the...
