Offshore floating wind turbines are one of the newest technologies in the renewable markets today. The world’s first floating wind farm, the Hywind Scotland Pilot Park, was commissioned in October 2017 and has been competitive with fixed bottom offshore wind turbines. There is a global push to make more renewable energy available, but less...

The main goal of this project is to determine the optimal location for an OTEC installation with a minimum lifespan of 30 years off the coast of Barranquilla and to make an anchor mooring design for the floater on which this installation is located. Bluerise has identified an area near the coast of Barranquilla for which OTEC can be applied....

Yachts are built to provide guests with a unique experience. In order to provide this experience, yachts are often anchored at special locations. Captains prefer to use a single bow anchor when they moor the vessel. Problems are reported with respect to the availability while yachts are at anchor. These are caused by environmental forces....

A great number of studies documented bidder merger losses around the merger announcement date. The majority of the determinants documented are considered rational, however, a great line of literature has increasingly focused on the effect of past stock prices on decision makers e.g. 52-week high. This implies that there is a notion of...

Liquefaction may have large influence on performance of anchored quay walls and is important to include in seismic design. Design codes provide evaluation methods that provide hardly any insight in the actual development of excess pore pressures and the don’t consider soil structure interaction. There is a need for tools that include these...

The purpose of this MSc thesis is to find a feasible concept for a circa 4500 m long buoyancy bridge, which is located at the Sognefjord in Norway. The concept should be structurally and aesthetically competitive. In contrast to bridges on shore with fixed supports, a buoyancy bridge is supported on floating pontoons. As result, loads will cause...

In the context of the project "Widening of the Juliana Canal" a bottom protection layer is designed by dredging contractor de Vries & Van de Wiel Kust en Oeverwerken. Because part of the channel is embedded in gravel type soil layers and lies above ground water level, a water repellent function of this layer is necessary to prevent seepage.In...

The thesis aims to find the changes in design and execution to immersed tunnels in subarctic regions. The Orlovsky Tunnel in St. Petersburg serves as a case study. The Orlovsky tunnel is a 1600 m tunnel in a rapid flowing river. the ice regime of the Neva River is characterized by frazil ice, which causes hanging ice jams and anchor ice....

Infrastructural transformation brought remarkable spatial quality to the Laurens Quarter. Binnenrotte square emerged as a permanent urban void. But, its potential overlooked and yet unveiled. All public buildings, main traffic access, and new development are concentrated near Blaak station. Recent transformation around the square were done in a...

In this thesis the current anchoring situation, especially in terms of occupancy and space use within anchorages, in the anchorages in the offshore approach of the port of Rotterdam in assessed by means of data analysis of historical data. Using this data analysis as input a stochastic simulation model is constructed in MATLAB to assess...

In this thesis, an investigation is described to the measured horizontal displacements of a quay wall in the Port of Rotterdam. This quay wall was built in 2003 to replace an existing jetty. A combined tubular wall was installed and some of the concrete jetty piles were reused as foundation piles for the relieving platform. Anchorage for the...

An ever-increasing number of cables and pipelines are being laid on the bottom of lakes, channels, rivers, seas, and oceans. Various hazards threaten these pipelines and cables, which in case of occurrence can cause (severe) environmental and/or economic damage. Pipelines and cables can be protected against these attacks by dumping protective...

Anchor bolts are often used in concrete or steel structures. Nevertheless still empirical design procedures are used in order to determine the dimensions of the structure. Non linear fracture mechanics tries to describe fracture of heterogeneous materials like concrete. In the classical representation of concrete fracturing (figure 1.1),...
