The offshore wind industry has been extended over the last years in areas of active seismicity, such as East Asia, where the design of offshore wind turbines becomes significantly challenging, because albeit aerodynamic and hydrodynamic loads mainly act on the offshore structures, earthquake could emerge as a potentially enormous threat. The...

The increasing frequency and intensity of extreme events due to global warming and climate change is increasing flood risk. To act, rather than react, nature-based solutions (NBS) involving vegetation and wetlands are being explored on top of conventional solutions like dikes. WHY? There was a dire need for global study quantifying the potential...

Recent major tsunami events generated by earthquakes inundated coastal cities and caused extreme destruction and loss of human lives. The collapse of coastal bridges due to tsunami wave impact represents a huge obstacle for rescue works. The need to understand tsunami effects and develop tsunami-resilient bridges became apparent in the aftermath...

The offshore industry is a conservative industry, sticking to rigid best-practices and reluctant to try new techniques. A promising new technique that hasn't found much adoption in offshore industry is SPH. This thesis aims to improve the reach and use of SPH within the offshore industry. With an abundance of world's unexplored hydrocarbons...

Coral reefs are degrading at an alarming rate, affecting not only the precarious coral ecosystem but also human habitat. The combination of coral degradation, sea level rise and its exacerbated effect in the tropics, and the possible storm intensification increases the flood vulnerability of low-lying tropical islands. To protect reef fronted...

Many coastlines fronted by a coral reef are threatened by wave driven flooding. For this reason, waves in coral reef environments has been topic of many studies. However, most are focused on a 1D simplification of the coral reef environment. These studies neglect the impact of 2D processes, for example wave directional spread. In this study an...

Land scarcity is increasing and therefore one of the main challenges for renewable energy in the future is ‘physical space’. While renewables need a lot of space compared to conventional energy sources, and the competition for space is already increasing (food production, housing etc.), leading to higher land costs and opposition. Public...

Nowadays, fears over rising sea levels due to global warming have prompted many countries with lands below sea level to find solutions to ensure the safety of nation and citizen. Furthermore, the development and utilization of marine resources have always been a topic of interest. Due to these necessities, the concept of flexible floating...

Particle - particle interactions in graphene force charge carriers to behave as viscous liquid. In this report we model and study such a system in the framework of molecular dynamics. Two interaction regimes are studied, Dirac regime with negative interaction potential and Fermi regime with positive potential. We report on numerical stability...

The competitiveness of the maritime sector together with energetic and environmental challenges have promoted a demand for more efficient marine vehicles. In response to this, research campaigns have been conducted, with the aim of developing new technologies. One of these technologies is the application of hydrofoils (e.g.: a Hull Vane) to...

Designing a controlled offshore system is a challenging process, the system dynamics are often nonlinear and subjected to loads that are random in nature. Furthermore, the proper description of the system’s dynamical behaviour involves knowledge pertaining to several fields. Unfortunately, at the design level, the process is often segregated...

This study presents the results of small scale flume experiments on a submerged rectangular cylinder subjected to a current, regular wave and combined wave-current environment. The objective of the study is to gain more knowledge about the hydrodynamics around and the kinematics of a submerged structure, to give a contribute to the research...

In the transition to renewable energy, harvesting the power from oceanic waves is often mentioned to be next step after the deployment of wind energy technology. Although many different solutions for wave energy conversion (WEC) are being developed and financial support schemes exist, commercially extracting this energy seems however to be...

Coastal regions are more and more affected by changes in water levels, storm patterns etc. owing to climate change. Nourishments and other human interventions constitute common practice in order to maintain and secure these areas. However, many aspects, especially the hydrodynamics, are not yet fully understood due to the complexity of the...

Terminos Lagoon is the biggest and ecologically most important fluvial-lagoon system of the southern Gulf of Mexico. Rivers, sea and meteorology all influence the lagoon, variable over the year, resulting in a complex situation. To protect this area, it is crucial to know how different hydrological processes, hydrodynamic processes and spatial...

Coastal facilities such as desalination plant or a nuclear power plant need a continuous discharge of salty water to carry out their functions. Hereby an intake structure, such as a velocity cap, can be used to take in water from the sea. These intakes are open seafloor founded constructions mounted at a water depth ranging between 10 and 20...

Allseas' Pioneering Spirit is the largest heavy lift vessel in the world. It uses its u-shaped bow to sail around an offshore platform and lift topsides up to 48.000t in a single lift. Despite being the largest vessel in the world, platforms exist that are simply too heavy, or too large to fit in between the bows of the vessel. Besides, smaller...

In the past years, climate change has caused an increasing number of extreme weather events. In the Netherlands this is, for instance, reflected by the growing amount of extreme rainfall events. This creates big issues for water management authorities like water boards. Water boards are often responsible for local streams, that cannot handle the...
