The ambitious goals towards the decarbonization of the global energy sector have amplified the demand for renewable energy resources. Amongst the renewables, offshore wind possesses a pivotal role in this endeavour, showcasing remarkable growth in recent years. However, this rapid expansion has been accompanied by a series of technical...

This paper presents a computationally efficient model for vibratory pile installation. A semi-analytical finite element (SAFE) model for thin cylindrical shells is derived to represent the pile. The linear dynamic response of the soil medium is described by means of Green's functions via the Thin-Layer Method (TLM) coupled with Perfectly...

In this paper, the characteristics of the induced ground motion are studied for two pile installation methods. Specifically, the classical axial vibratory driving is compared with the Gentle Driving of Piles (GDP) method, to investigate the effect of high-frequency torsional excitation in the soil response. For that purpose, a non-linear 3-D...

Gentle Driving of Piles (GDP) is a new vibratory installation technology for tubular (mono)piles. It is characterized by the simultaneous application of low-frequency axial and high-frequency torsional vibrations, envisaged to achieve both high installation performance and reduced underwater noise emissions. The concept of GDP has been...

Soil exhibits hysteretic damping. A commonly used implementation of this type of damping are the Masing rules. They consist of a loading and an unloading branch, dened as a piecewise function and having a nonsmooth character. This paper presents a framework how steady-state solutions of the motion of a soil column, with nonlinear hysteretic...

In the pursuit of a new ultra-efficient generation of turbomachines, novel and more sophisticated flow simulation and optimization methods have to be adopted. With the development of harmonic balance (HB) methods and adjoint optimization, questions arise on the concrete benefits of using one method over another. This research investigates the...

The strive for cleaner energy sources is one of the most demanding problems the world faces today. The role of offshore wind in the energy transition is becoming increasingly relevant. One of the areas where the industry expects to reduce conservatism and uncertainty in design is the interaction of the foundations of offshore wind turbines with...

The company Deepwater Energy BV, Netherlands developed a unique water turbine called as the Oryon Watermill (OWM). It was the aim of the company to obtain an efficient numerical model for the turbine. A numerical model, which serves as a good starting point, has already been developed by Maniyara [1]. This model suffered from certain limitations...
