Snaathorst, Andrew (author)
This thesis investigates the total environmental impact of various alternative marine energy carriers while taking the powering increase into account due to their disadvantageous spatial requirements compared to conventional fuel. A parametric design tool for bulk carriers, tankers, container ships, and trailing suction hopper dredgers has been...

Kooij, Egbert (author)
The need for relating stakeholders with requirements and the need for systems modeling are the main drivers for this thesis. Relating stakeholders with requirements is beneficial in order to balance the interests of all stakeholders associated with complex design projects. The variability in types of stakeholders and information abundance in...

The main aim of the master thesis was to create a design tool for the arrangement of the Propulsion, Power and Energy (PPE) systems during the conceptual design stage in cooperation with Maritime Research Institute of Netherlands (MARIN). Within MARIN, a recent and novel methodology known as Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is implemented...

Internal combustion engine (ICE) emissions cause numerous social, environmental, health, and economic issues, including extreme weather or harm to public health. These effects are also experienced in the Chinese Pearl River Delta, where a high-speed, 200-passenger ferry named the Coastal Cruiser 200 (CC-200) uses ICEs to operate. The CC-200's...

The probabilistic damage stability method offers great design freedom when used as a base of design. However, due to the complexity of the calculation and amount of parameters that influence the attained index, much of this freedom is not being harnessed by designers. This research tries to give the designer more insight in where to look when...

In this thesis a grey-box model is developed to predict the power increase over time due to marine biofouling. Biofouling is known as the undesired adverse effect of living organisms growing on submerged surfaces. Fouling creates roughness on the hull and propeller and thus additional frictional resistance and loss of propeller efficiency, also...

In order to reduce fossil fuel consumption of the Royal Netherlands Navy (RNLN) by 70% in 2050, the use of alternative fuels on the large naval surface vessels is examined. This paper examines the implications for the design and operational effectiveness of these vessels by performing two case studies of the Zeven Provinci¨en air defence and...

This paper describes two new modular ship design activities for graduate education at Delft University of Technology that have been developed during COVID. First, a new 2-hour hybrid format (in-person and virtual participation) game was designed to teach students modular design for offshore support vessels (OSVs). Second, an 8-week MSc-level...

The maritime energy transition presents deep uncertainties that are difficult to deal with in the current ship design process. Even though other fields have stressed using adaptive strategies and explorative methods to deal with deep uncertainty, it is rarely included in ship design. Therefore, this paper compares three applicable methods to...

In order to meet climate change mitigation targets, the shipping industry must change to an alternative fuel. From a ship design perspective, the switch to an alternative fuel is often a downgrade with respect to the use of conventional fuels. For instance, most alternative fuels have a low energy density, rely on technology that is not fully...

Distribution system robustness estimation is crucial in performing a substantiated trade-off in early-stage ship design. To improve the current robustness estimation, a maritime robustness approach (de Vos, 2018) is compared to and verified by a general network robustness approach (Van Mieghem, 2010). The first studied approach is verified by...

Crew transportation executed by vessels started as a result of the development of offshore platforms close to land. Due to the growing oil demand in combination with limited space for new installations in shallow water areas, these platforms have expanded to deepwater locations. To transport crew over these longer distances, helicopters are used...

The adverse human contribution to global climate change has forced the yachting industry to acknowledge the need to reduce its environmental impact due to the client's increasing pressure and potential future regulations to limit the ecological effects. Unfortunately, current real-world data presents a significant disparity between predicted and...

Design decisions which are made in the preliminary ship design phase have a significant influence on the performance and total cost of a ship. These design decisions are mostly made with very little knowledge of the ship design problem. In fact, it is the personal experience of the naval architect which plays a significant role in this phase of...

By 2030, a new amphibious transport ship is to be available for the Dutch Royal Navy. In light of the foreseen rise in airborne operations from the ship, more insight is desired into the impact of ship design choices on helicopter operational availability. There is need for a predictive tool, which can be used in the early design phase of the...

Traditionally, ships are powered by fossil fuels in combustion engines, causing 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Alternative installations have yet to prove their reliability and are currently not as cheap or technological ready. <br/>To enable ship-owners to prepare their ship for the future, but postpone their decision on which...

The International Maritime Organization forecasts that greenhouse gasses produced by ships will increase rapidly in the near future, unless precautions are taken now. This will require all ships to reduce their emissions, especially container vessels which are producing the most emissions. One way of reducing emissions, with existing technology,...

Global endeavors to reduce emissions in the shipping industry are accelerating the interest in fuel cell systems. This paper explores the application of different fuel cell types (LT-PEMFC, HT-PEMFC and SOFC) in combination with different fuels (LH2, LNG,MeOH and NH3) in expedition cruise ships. An impact model is developed for the first design...

Naval ships are designed to operate in hostile environments. As such, vulnerability reduction is an important aspect that needs to be assessed during the design. With the increased interest in electrification and automation on board naval ships, the vulnerability of distributed systems has become a major topic of interest. However, assessing...
