The rapid growth of Floating Offshore Wind (FOW) has spurred intensive research across various aspects of the floating system. A standard practice in mooring system design within the industry is that anchors remain fixed on the seabed. In contrast, plate-type anchors exhibit mobility under loading, a crucial factor considering the thousands of...

Offshore wind energy's rapid expansion underscores the need for accurate and efficient methods to analyze the behavior of monopile foundations supporting wind turbines. While three-dimensional (3D) analyses provide comprehensive insights, their computational demands are significant. As an alternative, one-dimensional (1D) models with spring...

The Dutch Rhine-Meuse delta is expected to require many dike reinforcements on a short and long term, due to (accelerated) sea level rise. Average damage in unembanked areas will increase too, and a costly replacement of the Maeslantkering is expected after 2070. Delta21 is a project that aims to address these challenges related to flood...

The coastal safety of the dunes are of high importance for low laying countries (Chen et al., 2017). This is especially true for the Netherlands as it is used officially as a safety measure against flooding from extreme weather since 1984 (Rijkswaterstaat, 1989). As of current 1D modelling of the waves is an acceptable method for the Dutch coast...

Due to climate change, temperatures are rising worldwide resulting in sea level rise, higher evaporation and possible changes in precipitation patterns. These effects of climate change influence salt intrusion, particularly by affecting the freshwater supply. In The Gambia also a planned hydropower dam and possibly future irrigation development...

Offshore wind energy is considered a necessary energy resource, that may stimulate the transition from fossil fuels. Following the successful development in Western Europe, offshore wind is quickly gaining momentum in the Asia-Pacific region. At variance with North-Sea based offshore wind turbines (OWTs), structures installed in the Asia-Pacific...

With increasing evidence of human-induced accelerated climate change, the need of sustainable, non-polluting, energy sources becomes evident. Offshore wind generated electricity is currently one of the most promising sources of energy to create a sustainable global energy mix. The offshore wind industry has developed rapidly over the last years....

Offshore wind generated electricity is currently one of the most promising sources of energy to contribute in creating a sustainable global energy mix. The latter is essential for minimising the detrimental impact of human-induced accelerated climate change. The cost of offshore wind power has strongly decreased over the past years due to ...

Mussche, Henk (author)
This thesis research focusses on the development of a reliable and efficient 3D calculation model of an existing high-rise, reinforced concrete building in the Groningen area, in order to analyse the dynamic behaviour of the existing and subsequently retrofitted main bearing structure of this high-rise building. The assessment of the existing...

A procedure is presented for the derivation of an effective small-strain soil stiffness governing the soil– structure interaction of large-diameter monopiles. As a first step, geophysical measurements are used to estimate the depth-dependent shear modulus G of the soil stratum. The second step is to use this modulus and an estimated Poisson’s...

SLIM is an unstructured mesh, finite element model of environmental and geophysical fluid flows, which is being improved to simulate fine-grained sediment transport in riverine and marine water systems. A 2D depth-averaged version of the model is applied to the Mahakam Delta (Borneo, Indonesia), the adjacent ocean, and three lakes in the central...
