Wave impact tests are performed in the LNG industry to design the structure of the cargo containment system (CCS) of the vessels and to study the physics of breaking wave impacts. The state-of-the-art methodology divides the wave impact flow into two parts: the global flow and the local flow. The global flow considered as the solution of the...

In this thesis the differences between the monohull and semi-submersible are investigated. For a general heavy lift crane operation and its operational profile, the difference is performance and total cost are calculated. These are used to determine the turning point, the point where the semi-submersible is more favourable for a heavy lift crane...

Currently, lower-body exoskeletons for<br/>paraplegics are investigated as an alternative to wheelchairs<br/>and as an exercise method with medical benefits. Literature<br/>provides little examples for users to influence the<br/>length or frequency of steps taken by the exoskeleton,<br/>complicating stability and practical usability. This study...

Motion compensation for personnel transfer has greatly reduced costs and increased accessibility for offshore assets operation and maintenance. Solutions exist using hexapods or gangways that make a stiff connection by clamping to a customized offshore structure. State of the art gangways allow for a stepless workflow and have a rubber tip which...
