Offshore mussel cultivation is gaining popularity, with the longline technique emerging as a popular method for cultivation. The longline technique entails multiple backbones from which mussel lines that loop around it are suspended and which are kept afloat by buoys. Overdulve Offshore Services designed the Cees Leenaars, a semi-submersible...

The Landing Platform Dock vessel is mainly designed to support amphibious operations in which landing operations play an important role. For operating landing craft the vessel has a well dock at the stern, designed to station several landing craft. Landing operations are restricted by the motions of the Landing Platform Dock vessel and by the...

The offshore wind industry is increasingly constructing wind turbines farther from the coast, in deeper water, and under more extreme conditions. This requires larger (monopile) foundations and necessitates new installation methods. An important factor affecting workability is the dynamic behavior of the monopile during installation. <br/>The...

Over the past few decades, there has been a significant increase in global energy consumption. To address the risks associated with climate change, there is an increasing urgency to transition towards renewable energy sources. With this growing demand, the interest in offshore wind energy has increased significantly, leading to the construction...

In head seas, the offshore construction vessel Pioneering Spirit experiences wave amplification in the slot between its bows. Wave run-up results in a water jet at the closed end. To avoid potential damage of structures in the slot and improve operational safety, more insight into this phenomenon is needed. The aim of this research is to...

When waves break, air and water mix and small air bubbles are formed in the water, creating aeration. The mixture of air and water alters the behavior of the fluid. Traditionally, it has been assumed that aeration has a damping effect on impact, as exemplified by the use of air bubbles in the swimming pool below the Olympic 10m platform and...

Surrogate modelling techniques such as Kriging are a popular means for cheaply emulating the response of expensive Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations. These surrogate models are often used for exploring a parameterised design space and identifying optimal designs. Multi-fidelity Kriging extends the methodology to incorporate data of...

This thesis study is intended to research the effects on peak pressure during impact of a deformable structure with a liquid. To find an answer to this question, a novel wedge was designed to perform free fall wedge experiments at the TU Delft. This report describes the progress that lead to answering the research question:<br/><br/>What is the...

The most violent breaking waves cause the largest platform forces at sea, however it is unknown which wave in a sea state leads to these forces if run-up is included. Offshore inspection platforms give access to wind turbine monopiles. They are positioned above mean sea level. Wave interaction with monopiles leading to runup causes vertical...

During specific operations, offshore marine contractor Heerema Marine Contractors reduces the draft of their Semi-Submersible Crane Vessel (SSCV) such that the floaters are submerged in close proximity to the free surface. This draft is also known as inconvenient draft. At this draft the motions of the vessel do not fully comply anymore with the...

The development of floating islands is an attractive option to provide living/working spaces at sea, as it would be a more economical solution for many locations at sea where the water depth is high. However, large second-order wave forces cause the floating island mooring system to become expensive as the wave height increases. So, in many...

In this report a new enriched finite volume method is introduced. This method will be particularly useful for fluid-structure interaction problems. In engineering many problems are in the domain of fluidstructure interaction. Examples of these are water in sea locks, blood flowing in vessels and sailing ships. Fluid problems are usually solved...

When sailing in heavy seas, it happens that the water washes over the bow. This shipping of water is generally divided into two types. The term white water is used when the water is more of a spray and is generally harmless. Green water is more violent and can pose a danger to the crew and structures on board. <br/><br/>Research on green water...

To facilitate the installation of larger monopiles multiple players in the offshore wind market are investigating the floating transport of monopiles to installation locations. This brings the challenge that when these floating monopiles are to be installed by heavy lift vessels, they must safely be handed over to the installation vessel and...

Green water events on ships in extreme waves pose a considerable risk to personal, operational, and structural safety. Considering these issues, novel experiments were done to investigate the interaction between focused breaking waves and a ship at forward speed. The investigated interactions are global motion, global loads, and forces on a deck...

Wave run-up is the vertical water uprush that occurs when an incident wave impacts on a surface-piercing body. This phenomenon is particularly relevant when waves of high steepness interact with large structures as a result of significant nonlinear interactions between incident and diffracted wave fields. The extent can be further amplificated...

Stimulated by the energy efficiency indices introduced by the International Maritime Organization, the increased attention for the environment as well as economical pressures emphasize the relevance of accurate resistance estimation for ships. This leads to a particular interest for added resistance in waves, a resistance component that is...

Marine structures can sustain damage due to violent wave impacts that are characterized by complex dynamics involving both water and air. Methods that predict impacts loads for structural design often assume the water as incompressible. These predictions can be inaccurate during impacts where air is entrained in water, as that greatly increases...

The size of vessels has increased significantly over the last decades and will increase even further in the decades to come. This trend is mainly visible in the size of container ships. A decade ago the largest container ship had a capacity of 13.500 TEU, nowadays the largest container ship has a capacity of almost 24.000 TEU. The capacity of...

Breaking water waves still represent a very active research area, as they are involved in a broad spectrum of situations ranging from safety at sea to climate change. The detailed knowledge of the location of the free surface in case of breaking waves or wave impacts could prevent structural damages, increase the efficiency of ship hulls and...
