The Offshore wind industry harvests energy in offshore locations, using large turbines to convert this energy to electrical power. The electricity is gathered and transported to shore via cables. These cables need to be protected from external hazards that could result in damages and thus economic losses. Generally the cables are buried in the...

This study aims to improve the predictive capabilities of flow pattern and depositional behaviour of non-Newtonian, high concentration sand and fines mixtures. The depositional behaviour influences the geometry of the deposit and the distribution of sand and fines particles, which in turn influence the strength and consolidation performance of...

Offshore wind is a fast growing industry that has the potential to play an increasing role in the near future of power generation. As the industry evolves, wind farms are constructed further offshore where the wind is less turbulent and more space is available to increase the size of the wind farms. Furthermore, the capacity and size of wind...

Heerema Marine Contractors is an offshore contractor who specializes in the installation and removal of a range of offshore facilities. This includes the installation of submarine pipelines in excess of 1500 [m] water depth. Higher water depths drive the pipeline designs to increase wall thickness. Another motive to apply a low D/t ratio is to...

The term Leak-Before-Break (LBB) refers to a well-established safety criterion used to assess whether cracked tanks or pipes can leak detectable amounts of fluid as a warning before catastrophic failure occurs. In this research The LBB criterion was applied to the safety assessment of spherical Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) containment systems on...

Project Code: OE54015, OE54030. The potential of offshore wind is enormous. The wind resource offshore is generally much greater than onshore, especially at bigger water depths. Expanding prudently into the sea leads to bigger support structures for the wind turbine. Therefore, the need for optimized designs, which will establish the wind energy...

This thesis analyses the loads that occurred during an ice ridge ramming experiment with the icebreaker Oden. Sea ice ridges are formed due to breaking and deformation of the ice cover. Wind, current, thermal expansion and Coriolis forces induce compression and shear forces onto level ice which can break the ice into rubble. The blocks of ice...

This thesis presents a procedure to calculate fatigue damage in tubular connections based on the spectral fatigue analysis method. The critical joints can be detected and the contribution of each wave heading to the fatigue damage can be investigated. The procedure developed is applied to perform the fatigue assessment of Miller jacket.

During its expedition from 1872 to 1876, the HMS Challenger (see right) first proved the abundance of polymetallic nodules in the Pacific-, Indian- and Atlantic Oceans, giving rise to new interest in economic development of this resource. A century later, in 1976, the first successful pilot mining test for polymetallic nodule recovery was...

The Double Slip Joint (DSJ) is a new design concept to connect the transition piece to the foundation pile of an offshore wind turbine. It potentially offers high dynamic strength and reliability at a lower cost of installation and maintenance compared to other conventional techniques thereby contributing to the decrease of the cost of the wind...

Thesis on development of novel sealants for Sliding Casing Concept. The research aims to develop a sealant which provides zonal isolation so that there is no communication between different geological layers, permits the casing to be lowered downwards on its own weight during drilling operations and lastly can be triggered into a permanent...

When a shipwreck lies in an undesirable place it can be lifted out of the water or moved to larger water depths(scuttling). Commonly used methods for this procedure are the use of floating sheerlegs, crane ships or chain pullers. Floating sheerlegs and crane ships can be used for lifting the shipwreck through the water column, where chain...
