Unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings are vulnerable when subjected to out-of-plane dynamic loading, especially under as earthquakes. Within the masonry building, the wall spanning in the direction perpendicular to the seismic loading is the most critical component. Damage to these walls (out-of-plane failure) frequently leads to the partial or...

The Submerged Floating Tunnel (SFT) is an innovative type of transport structure, with significant advantages in crossing long, deep and wide water areas, compared to more conventional types of bridges. Recognizing its potential, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration is planning to use such technology, in creating a ferry-free highway that...

Offshore wind turbines (OWTs), together with their support structures, are designed for an operational period of 20 years. The first generation of these offshore wind turbines has already reached or is approaching their designed lifetime of 20 years. Depending on the legislation and the governmental subsidies, a decision needs to be made about...

It is well known that for tall cylindrical structures under wind action, such as wind turbine towers, vortex induced vibrations (VIV) may occur. During the installation of offshore wind turbine towers there are different stages of transport where we might deal with VIV. The main objective of this thesis is to explore the possibility of modeling...

Offshore oil and gas projects usually require the presence of more than one facilities in the same location. These facilities need to be connected with each other in order to enable the transfer of personnel among each other. As a result, bridges are implemented for such purposes with their ends being positioned at extensions of the two...

As a reaction to urban densication, light weight building is an attractive concept for optimally utilizing the capacity of the existing built environment. A common issue paired with light weight construction is the need to engage in vibrational design, in order to minimize hindrance due to human activities such as walking, that cause vibrations...

Recognizing climate change as a result of more than 150 years of industrial activity, and due to the emission reduction protocols set internationally, wind energy has become the mainstream source of energy for many developed nations. Due to the prospect of large scale energy generation, wind energy has moved offshore. Offshore wind farms are...

One way to implement a wind turbine in the sea is to use lattice structures. Since these structures are placed offshore, they must be able to withstand all kinds of loads. It is essential that the eigenfrequencies of the support structure do not correspond to the passing frequencies of the blades and any other dynamic actions. To avoid this the...

The S-lay pipeline installation method is characterised by its fast installation process and its application in all water depths. Offshore standards and design codes provide local buckling checks for combined loading criteria for load controlled and displacement controlled conditions, where a load controlled condition is defined as a case in...

In order for the offshore wind industry to be competitive, the cost has to be driven down. One of the major factors that contribute to the overall cost is the over-dimensioning of the substructure. The response of the structure under various loading conditions can provide valuable insight in the design phase so as to provide a structural design...

As climate change seems to become more and more of a serious issue, a sudden surge of interest in clean and renewable energy sources is inevitable. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC), or the process of harnessing energy from the temperature difference between the warm upper ocean layer and the cold bottom ocean layer, is one of these...

A split hopper barge is a dredging vessel that can split over its longitudinal axis to discharge its cargo. To allow for such an operation, the barge consists of two half-hulls that are connected by hinges at the top and hydraulic cylinders at the bottom. Any forces that act at the interface between the half-hulls have to be transferred by the...

This thesis is aimed at finding the most cost effective way of executing Modular Execution Strategy (MES) for building pipe racks of a project that an engineering company Fluor B.V. is currently executing in Kuwait. A pipe rack is a steel structure which is constructed to efficiently place and support multiple levels of pipelines for industrial...
