The response of maritime structures can be multiaxial, involving predominant mode-I and non-negligible mode-III components. Adopting a stress distribution formulation based effective notch stress as fatigue strength parameter for mixed mode-{I, III} multiaxial fatigue assessment purposes, a mode-I equivalent von Mises type of failure...

This study examines the potential of a new type of floating seawall, made up of retired large-scale oceangoing vessels, to be used in open water and exposed coastal areas. The main objectives of the research are to assess the effectiveness of the floating seawall concept, to determine the contribution of the gap resonance to wave attenuation,...

The lack of suitable boundary conditions in practical surface wave simulations with maritime structures in current or at forward speed may cause energy in the computational domain to accumulate due to spurious wave reflection. The common way to prevent wave reflection is to use passive wave absorbers, such as damping zones or relaxation zones...

The high mass transfer to or from gas-evolving electrodes is an attractive feature of electrochemical reactors, which can be partly attributed to the large convective flows that arise due to the buoyancy of bubbles. We derive exact analytical expressions for mass transfer coefficients for the case of constant gas flux boundary conditions. For...

Since the industrial revolution the ocean has become noisier. The global increase in shipping is one of the main contributors to this. In some regions, shipping contributed to an increase in ambient noise of several decibels, especially at low frequencies (10 to 100 Hz). Such an increase can have a substantial negative impact on fish,...

The multimodal and dispersive character of ultrasonic guided waves (UGW) offers the potential for non-destructive evaluation of fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) materials. In this study, a methodology for in situ stiffness assessment of FRCs using UGWs is introduced. The proposed methodology involves a comparison between measured wave speeds of...

The research presented in this thesis aims at understanding how gases influence the cavitating vortex generated by a wing tip in a stationary flow. Gases in the flow occur as non-condensible microbubbles as well as gases dissolved in the liquid. They are typically abundant in surface flows. For studying how dissolved gases influence a cavitating...

Cavitation is the formation of vapor pockets in a liquid due to a pressure drop or an increase in speed. Cavitation nuisance can be disastrous for mechanical components, and therefore needs to be controlled from an early design stage. However, predicting cavitation dynamics using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and therefore the performance...

Offshore support structures and mooring systems are predominantly subject to corrosion and fatigue. These structures are typically covered with marine growth of various types. Conventional inspection methods for assessment of the structural integrity require access to the cleaned surface of these structures; however, the cleaning process is...

In the assessment of wave-in-deck loads for new and existing maritime structures typically model tests are carried out. To determine the most critical conditions and measure sufficient impact loads, a range of sea states and various seeds (realisations) for each sea state are tested. Based on these measurements, probability distributions can...

Green water and slamming wave impacts can lead to severe damage or operability issues for marine structures. It is therefore essential to consider their probability and loads in design. This is difficult, as impacts are both hydrodynamically complex and relatively rare. The complexity requires high-fidelity modeling (experiments or CFD),...

In head waves, water jet impacts due to run up can occur as a result of the structural configuration of some floating structures, reducing workability. Wave attenuation near the floater may reduce the risk of water jet impacts. This paper presents a numerical study of the performance and attenuation mechanisms of various plate type fixed free...

A novel cavitation erosion risk model, developed by Schenke et al. ["On the relevance of kinematics for cavitation implosion loads,"Phys. Fluids 31, 052102 (2019)], is applied to compute the cavitation implosion loads. The instantaneous energy balance during the collapse of cavitating structures is considered, where the initial potential...

The numerical prediction of two-phase flows with an interface is challenging, to a considerable extent because of the high density ratio at the interface. Numerical results become affected by momentum losses, diverging spurious interface velocities, free surface distortion, and even numerical instability. To prevent issues like these,...

Over the last decades, many diffuse-interface Navier-Stokes Cahn-Hilliard (NSCH) models with non-matching densities have appeared in the literature. These models claim to describe the same physical phenomena, yet they are distinct from one another. The overarching objective of this work is to bring all of these models together by laying down...

For the design of maritime structures in waves, the extreme values of responses such as motions and wave impact loads are required. Waves and wave-induced responses are stochastic, so such responses should always be related to a probability. This information is not easy to obtain for strongly non-linear responses such as wave impact forces....

By analyzing the failure mechanisms, crashworthiness characteristics of FW composite tubes subjected to two modes of progressive damage and catastrophic failure are investigated using acoustic emission technique and numerical method. The AE signals of ±45° composite tubes were classified using hierarchical and wavelet transform methods, and...

Floating offshore structures are continuously subjected to wave loads and loading originating from operational activities. These loads lead to cracks growing in the structure, a process known as fatigue accumulation. The analysis of fatigue accumulation is subject to large uncertainties. This is related to the high sensitivity of fatigue...

In the condition monitoring of bearings using acoustic emission (AE), the restriction to solely instrument one of the two rings is generally considered a limitation for detecting signals originating from defects on the opposing non-instrumented ring or its interface with the rollers due to the signal energy loss. This paper presents an approach...
