For the development of Arctic offshore structures, design ice loads are required. These design loads represent the ice loads a structure may be exposed to for specified requirements. The design ice loads depend on magnitude of the ice loads and on the probability of exposure to the ice loads. Both are impacted by local sea ice conditions.<br/>...

During a previous research project, a parametric model for conceptual layout design has been developed. The model uses optimisation using genetic algorithms to approach the optimal breakwater layout for specific locations. <br/>The developed model serves as a successful proof-of-concept. In the model, several aspects of design have been...

The use of artificial neural networks is becoming ever more ubiquitous as the computational power available to use grows. The widespread implementation of neural networks as controllers in the field of systems and control is however being hindered by the lack of verifiability of these controllers. One type of controller that does not lack...

Stiffened shells and plates are widely used in engineering, but their performance is highly influenced by the arrangement, or layout, of stiffeners on the base shell or plate and the geometric features, or topology, of these stiffeners. Moreover, structures with modules are beneficial, since it allows for increased quality control and more...
