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...

In the quest for renewable energy for tropical islands, Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) has revealed itself as one of the most promising technologies. OTEC stands or falls with the performance of the condenser. Plate Heat Exchangers (PHEs) have proven their selves as effective heat transfer
equipment for low enthalpy cycles such as...

In 2011 a relatively new type of numerical scheme has been introduced: Active Flux schemes. In this type of scheme an extra degree of freedom is added to the cell interfaces of a regular finite volume grid. This enables the use of non-conservative update methods for these additional variables, as conservation is automatically adhered to by the...

Subsea rock installation is widely applied in the offshore industry and utilized for a wide range of purposes including but not limited to: pipeline protection, scour protection, insulation of pipelines, upheaval buckling prevention and seabed preparation. Tideway Offshore Solutions is specialized in subsea rock installation and currently...

This study was aimed at improving the accuracy of the model predictions for the minimum fluid and inner wall temperatures for cold, low-pressure start-up of wells that produce oil or gas. Due to the large pressure drop over the well head choke, the so-called Joule-Thomson cooling will give a very low temperature of the
expanding gas jet. Low...

In this work the residual-based variational multiscale method is presented in a discontinuous Galerkin framework. This so-called ‘DG-RVMS’ strategy is developed, extensively verified, and tested on a more complex case.

The proposed DG-RVMS paradigm consists of three principle components. First, the perelement weak form is coupled by...

Erosion is a phenomenon present in several industrial processes. In dredging, the jetting of sand in drag heads erodes the sand bed. In construction of offshore infrastructure such as wind turbines, oil and gas production units, marine pipelines, erosion of material near the foundations can put the stability of structures at stake. Furthermore,...

Double degree. Supervision of the thesis also at: Faculty Applied Mathematics, Department Numerical Analysis, Programme M.Sc. Applied Mathematics. Structure-preserving discretization techniques preserve fundamental structure of operators and operands found in partial differential equations. Classical discretization techniques sometimes neglect...

In the offshore industry rock is used for different kind of applications, such as scour protection and pipeline protection. In deep water operations, but also increasingly in shallow water operations, use is made of the method by guiding the rock from the water surface to the seabed with a fallpipe. During a rock placement operation a current...

Royal IHC is exploring the possibilities of a subsea separation concept for its deep sea mining concept. The most promising concept from literature was the crossflow separator, this separation concept was further researched. This to have a look at the performance of such a crossflow separator and to find out what geometry is most suitable for...

Vortex generators (VGs) are effectively used to improve the performance of the wind turbine blades by means of flow control. VGs can be represented by local geometrical disturbance on the aerodynamic surfaces. This disturbance generates vortices in the streamwise direction, energizing the boundary layer and hence delaying or suppressing the flow...

Fuel efficiency is an important factor for the shipping industry both regarding new build vessels and existing vessels. A method to reduce the fuel consumption of existing vessels operating in off design conditions is to trim a vessel in the most optimum trim condition. The current approach to determine the most efficient trim condition is to...

Measuring the temperature distribution inside the rotary kilns, using thermocouples for instance has proven to be difficult due to the harsh operating conditions of the kiln. Numerical modelling of turbulent combustion and the associated physical phenomenon thus proves to be an indispensable tool towards predicting the kiln operating conditions....

The Technical University Delft has great ambitions for the future. Becoming a well-known university in the world is one of them. Therefore the TU Delft should reconsider the impression that they carry out of the TU Delft Campus. My site is located in the center of the campus, where the 80 -meter-high faculty of EWI (electronis, math and...

The rudder-propeller, as the azimuthing thruster was originally called, can be rotated 360 degrees and is capable of delivering full propulsive power in any direction. The azimuthing thruster makes use of a mechanical transmission in order to deliver the power from the prime mover to the propeller. The good maneuverability and the absence of a...

One of the major problems associated with oil and gas production is the large volume of produced water. Operators around the world are facing significant costs with the treatment and disposal of produced water. Downhole separation, a relatively new technique, has been developed to reduce the costs of produced water and increase oil production....

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells operate at high temperatures, which places stringent requirements on the ceramic materials in these devices. Optimizing the design by thermal stress minimization could increase the life expectancy of a fuel cell. In order to do this it is important to have a detailed understanding of the heat flows and temperature profiles...

Presently 10% of natural gas supplied to the Netherlands is used to maintain a stable climate and continuous electricity within horticultural greenhouses. As a result, technologies that reduce this energy consumption are in high demand. Theoretical models of heat flows in greenhouses can be used as a tool to increase the efficiency of these...
