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...

Modelling of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) is challenging due to the strong coupling between the aerodynamics of the turbine and the hydrodynamics of the floating structure, which makes the dynamic response of the whole system highly complex. A variety of numerical approaches can be used to predict this response.<br/><br/>The frequency...

Global warming is a topic of major concern the last decade and for reason the IMO adopted a strategy to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gasses of vessels. In order to meet the IMO requirements ships propulsion systems need to become more sustainable. An option to reduce emission is the implementation of fuel cells running on hydrogen together...

Implementation of an Explicit Algebraic Reynolds Stress Model in Isogeometric Analysis for seperating flows using a two-equation k-omega model. The model is verified for simple cases such as homogeneous isotropic decaying turbulence, and the turbulent backward facing step

The vertical viscous drag force acting on a heaving cylinder with flat and hemispheric bases is investigated by means of an experiment, a linear and a nonlinear analytic model. Viscous effects create a significant uncertainty in estimating the motion response of oscillating cylinders in waves of different frequencies. Forced oscillation tests...

This master thesis presents the computation of free-surface flow phenomena with emphasis on ship hydromechanics. We perform a simulation of the heave and the pitch motion of the DTMB 5415M ship moving in head sea. To this purpose we employ an existing Arbitrary-Lagrangian-Eulerian residual-based variational multiscale method (ALE-RBVMS) to...

Accurately predicting the ship motions, is essential knowledge when operating in water. To predict the ship motions, multiple ship characteristics have to be known. For the roll motion, one of these characteristics is the roll damping coefficient. Nowadays the industry standard to determine the roll damping coefficient of a ship is by performing...

The comfort assessment of ships is based on several criteria. There are for example criteria for motions, noise and vibrations. The criteria for motions are nowadays often defined as comfort limits on the accelerations in the ship motions. However, from other industries it followed that the rate of change of the accelerations, the jerk, can also...

Two important performance parameters of a ship are fuel consumption and motions in a seaway. Besides a well-designed hull, several appendages can be used to increase the performance. One of these is a resistance reducing fixed foil behind the transom of the ship. This wing has the potential to create large lift forces near the aft of the ship,...

Experience-based decision making by crew plays a key role in the safe and effective execution of maritime operations. For yachts and naval vessels, common operations can be identified as helicopter operations (take-off and landing), launch and recovery of small craft and (dis)embarkment to and from these small craft. All of these operations are...

The Royal Netherlands Navy (RNN) operates four diesel-electric submarines, the Walrus class. The submarines sail submerged on electric engines and periodically recharge the batteries with diesel engines at periscope depth. The exhaust gases are dispelled at the back of the sail below water level. During the sea trials it was observed that the...
