A fairly recent development in the maritime industry is the rising interest in composites, as they have great potential to outperform conventional metallics. They offer good corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance, a low magnetic signature, and a high strength to stiffness ratio. In case of a propeller, the latter may be utilized by adapting...

Aiming to enhance the performance of the industrial design process, structural optimization techniques have been proposed as an alternative to traditional design and optimization techniques.<br/>They own the potential of achieving an optimal distribution of the material through the design domain, thus reducing waste loss and weight, and...

The field of Airborne Wind Energy is concerned with harvesting high-altitude wind power; the corresponding group in Delft, in particular, is investigating the suitability of a kite for this purpose. Due to the high complexity that such a system ensues, it is of interest to have a fundamental understanding of the critical aero-elastic modes of...

The current wind turbine design tools are based on aerodynamic simulations using blade element momentum (BEM) codes to calculate loads and power, see for instance the tools HAWC2, Bladed or FAST. This engineering method is computationally efficient, but theoretically valid only for steady two dimensional flow in non-yawed conditions. <br/><br/...

Naval vessels are designed to remain operational in severe conditions, sea-state 6 or higher, and have to maintain a minimum forward speed in these conditions. These seakeeping conditions may result in severe impact loads on the bow of the vessel, called slamming. Sonar domes are often used at naval vessels to detect objects under water and are...

Flow-induced vibration (FIV) plays an important role in the nuclear industry. In nuclear power plants (NPP), the FIV may cause fatigue problems, stress corrosion cracking, possible failure modes and fretting wear. This in return can lead to nuclear safety issues and substantial stand-still costs due to unplanned outages. It is therefore...

This report focuses on the design and analysis of various subcomponents of the supersonic nozzle test section of the ORCHID setup. The primary concern is a study dedicated to the model support system which is crucial to the success of a series of gas dynamic experiments for high fidelity software validation. Standard design rules and empirical...

Feasibility study of a tire hydroplaning simulation in a finite element code using a coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian method. The considered FEA code is Simulia's Abaqus. Fundamentals of Abaqus' FSI solver is considered. This includes fluid and structure mechanics and fluid-structure interaction issues. The FSI solver is benchmarked. Conclusions and...
