Global society is confronted with various challenges: climate change should be mitigated, and society should adapt to the impacts of climate change, resources will become scarcer and hence resources should be used more efficiently and recovered after use, the growing world population and its growing wealth create unprecedented emissions of...

In this paper, a new simple oscillator model is considered describing ice-induced vibrations of upstanding, water-surrounded, and bottom-founded offshore structures. Existing models are extended by taking into account deformations of an ice floe and a moving contact interaction between an ice rod, which is cut out from the floe, and the...

In this paper, we propose a 60-GHz fractional-N digital frequency synthesizer aimed at reducing its phase noise (PN) at both the flicker (1/f <sup>3</sup> ) and thermal (1/f <sup>2</sup> ) regions while minimizing its power consumption. The digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) fundamentally resonates at 20 GHz and co-generates a strong...

Interaction of sea or lake ice with vertically sided offshore structures may result in severe structural vibrations commonly referred to as ice-induced vibrations. With the surge in offshore wind developments in sub-arctic regions this problem has received increased attention over the last decade, whereas traditionally the topic has been mainly...

Offshore wind turbines at locations where sea or lake ice is present need to be designed to withstand ice-induced loading. For vertical-sided support structures, such as monopiles, the effects of ice-induced vibrations need to be considered in the design. Current practice is either to use approaches provided in design standards, or for example...

The second edition of the ISO19906 design standard contains changes in the informative appendix concerning dynamic ice actions. Challenges in application of the previous approach and advances in understanding of the dynamic ice-structure interaction process were the main motivation for the revision. The new guideline provides relevant...

In this paper, the efficacy of an effective fluid model (EFM) is studied for replicating the effects that hydrodynamics has on the interaction between level ice, modeled as a semi-infinite Kirchhoff-Love plate, and a downward sloping structure, modeled as a rigid and immobile body. The proposed EFM is based on a distributed frequency-independent...

Ice-induced vibrations have to be considered in the design of vertically sided offshore structures which may encounter drifting sea or lake ice during their lifetime. One particular aspect is the contribution of ice-induced vibrations to the fatigue of such structures. Estimation of the duration of events is often difficult, due to limited...

Innovations are required in urban infrastructures due to the pressing needs for mitigating climate change and prevent resource depletion. In order to address the slow pace of innovation in urban systems, this paper analyses factors involved in attempts to introduce novel sanitary systems. Today new requirements are important: sanitary systems...

The signature and occurrence of frequency lock-in (FLI) vibrations of full-scale offshore structures are not well understood. Although several structures have experienced FLI, limited amounts of time histories of the responses alongside measured met-ocean data are available in the literature. This paper presents an analysis of 61 measured...

A 40-nm CMOS wakeup timer employing a bang-bang digital-intensive frequency-locked loop for Internet-of-Things applications is presented. A self-biased ΣΔ digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) is locked to an RC time constant via a single-bit chopped comparator and a digital loop filter. Such highly digitized architecture fully exploits the...

This paper presents a 7-MHz CMOS RC frequency reference. It consists of a frequency-locked loop in which the output frequency of a digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) is locked to the combined phase shifts of two independent RC (Wien bridge) filters, each employing resistors with complementary temperature coefficients. The filters are driven...

This paper presents a compact resistor-based CMOS temperature sensor intended for dense thermal monitoring. It is based on an RC poly-phase filter (PPF), whose temperature-dependent phase shift is read out by a frequency-locked loop (FLL). The PPF's phase shift is determined by a zero-crossing (ZC) detector, allowing the rest of the FLL to be...

This paper proposes an ultra-low-voltage (ULV) fractional-N all-digital PLL (ADPLL) powered from a single 0.5-V supply. While its digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) runs directly at 0.5 V, an internal switched-capacitor dc-dc converter ``doubles'' the supply voltage to all the digital circuitry and particularly regulates the time-to...

The use of optical diffusers for the reduction of peak-locking errors in particle image velocimetry is investigated. The working principle of the optical diffusers is based on the concept of birefringence, where the incoming rays are subject to different deflections depending on the light direction and polarization. The performances of the...

Vertically sided offshore structures subjected to level ice are designed to withstand the effects of ice-induced vibrations. Such structures are, for example, offshore wind turbines on monopile foundations, multi-legged oil- and gas platforms or lighthouses. For the prediction of dynamic interaction between ice and structures, several...

Ice-induced vibrations have to be considered in design of vertically sided offshore structures subjected to loading by sea ice, such as offshore wind turbines and oil- and gas platforms. The interaction between ice and structure may result in high global peak loads and the occurring structural vibrations can contribute significantly to the...

In this paper, we apply various area reduction techniques on an inductor–capacitor (LC)-tank oscillator in order to make its size comparable to that of ring oscillators (ROs), while still retaining its salient features of excellent phase noise and low sensitivity to supply variations. The resulting oscillator employs a proposed ultracompact...
