This thesis presents the design and experimental evaluation of an in-line, active ultrasound, condition monitoring setup for the detection of contamination in offshore bearing grease. This process is divided into three distinct research steps. First of all, the influences that affect ultrasound propagation through a bearing grease sample have...

Governments are looking more and more to invest in renewable energy sources due to the energy transition that is currently taking place. One of the many renewable energy sources is wind energy which is increasingly positioned at sea. Wind turbines in deep parts of the ocean can be placed on floating structures which are often moored to the sea...

Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) have emerged as a promising technology for generating clean energy in deep water locations. Bluewater Energy Services proposes a Tension Leg Platform (TLP) as the floating support structure. An effective Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system (of which there are various types) can facilitate timely...

Floating offshore production units are typically anchored to the seabed with mooring chains. Structural degradation of mooring chain steel can lead to premature failure with large environmental and financial consequences. In the oceanic environment, corrosion and fatigue are the dominant failure modes for mooring chains. These damage mechanisms...

Fiber Reinforced Composite (FRC) materials are gaining great popularity in marine structures because of their excellent strength-to-weight ratio, low density, and provided freedom in the design process. However, the use of FRC materials comes along with relatively large uncertainties in material properties and structural integrity after...

Fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) marine propellers potentially outperform metallic propellers in terms of efficiency and underwater radiated noise (URN) by hydro-elastic tailoring of the blades. Several methods can assess the extent of these potentials. Research shows that embedded sensing methods can be used in dynamic measurements of...

For floating photovoltaic systems, an uncommon type of offshore structure is considered, which is very flexible and deforms with the motion of the waves. In this research, the bending characteristics of a drop-stitch floater is analysed, which is an inflatable panel. By inflating the drop-stitch floater to a low air pressure, it obtains a...

Highly-loaded low-speed roller bearings are frequently used in equipment offshore e.g. slew bearings in crane, sheave bearings and FPSO turret bearings. Reducing maintenance costs, increasing productivity, ensuring safety of people and structural integrity and longevity assurance of equipment can be achieved by the condition monitoring of highly...

Mooring chains are subject to dynamic loads and corrosion. A challenging aspect in assessing the integrity of mooring chains is the presence of marine growth. Marine growth removal is expensive, environmentally damaging, and includes the risk of restarting corrosion process. The focus of this research is on the feasibility of mooring chains...

Fibre-reinforced composites are increasingly being used in maritime structures. Piezoelectric sensors can be used to monitor both loads acting on a fibre-reinforced composite structure and elastic waves emitted from damage initiation within the structure. In certain marine applications, due to a harsh environment or for hydrodynamic reasons,...
