The offshore wind industry is increasingly constructing wind turbines farther from the coast, in deeper water, and under more extreme conditions. This requires larger (monopile) foundations and necessitates new installation methods. An important factor affecting workability is the dynamic behavior of the monopile during installation. <br/>The...

In previous research, the necessity of non-rigid body simulators was stated to be a requirement for long, slender bodies. However, it remains unclear for which vehicle design parameters non-rigid body effects become destabilising. A set of 2+N linearly independent equations of motions can be combined in a single matrix to determine the motion of...

Natural gas accounts for just under a quarter of global energy demand. The gas is mainly delivered through pipelines, but is increasingly shipped overseas by liquefying it to LNG at -162 degrees Celcius. Fluids, containing free surfaces inside ships are likely to start sloshing, as ships move on waves. These fluids induce impact loading on the...

The dynamic response of pressure sensors for model tests of sloshing impacts is paramount to recording these highly dynamic events. In this study, we investigated the dynamic behavior of the new pressure sensors presented at ISOPE 2018 (Schreier and Poelma, 2018), which increased the spatial resolution of sloshing pressure measurements by a...

The graduation project was conducted at the upper stage liquid propulsion department of ArianeGroup at the facilities of Airbus DS, Bremen. Based on a series of past flights of Ariane 5 launcher, the aim is to analyze the fluid motion and the pressure fluctuations in the cryogenic propulsion upper stage Liquid Hydrogen (LH...

Parametric studies on the optimization of baffles on vibration suppression of partially filled tanks coupled by structure have been widely conducted in literature. However, few studies focus on the effect of the position of the baffles on fluid flow stratification and dampening the motion. In the present study, a numerical investigation, an...

This paper presents an adaptive control technique to deal with spacecraft attitude tracking and disturbance rejection problems in the presence of model uncertainties. Approximate dynamic programming has been proposed to solve adaptive, optimal control problems without using accurate systems models. Within this category, linear approximate...

Offshore structures with partially filled storage tanks may experience sloshing of the cargo when exposed to waves. Inventive use on the topside result in storage tanks which are built as an integrated part of the deck structure. Weight control and available space is often a critical issue for offshore projects and can be improved by this...

Moonpools are vertical wells used on most offshore vessels at Huisman Equipment. The oscillations in the moonpool lead to a significant increase in resistance for vessels in transit conditions. In the concept design phase it has proven difficult to predict the moonpool behaviour, as well as the effect of implementing appendages within a long...

Wind energy as an auxiliary form of propulsion for commercial ships has again become of great interest as a possible response to volatile fuel prices and increasingly stringent environmental regulations. A well-founded performance prediction tool is a key prerequisite for the further development of this promising technology, and with the support...

Air lubrication techniques are very promising in reducing ship drag. It has been demonstrated that air cavity applications can realise propulsive power reduction percentages of 10-20% due to the reduction of the frictional resistance [1, 2]. However, a complete understanding of the two-phase flow physics involved with air cavity flows is still...

In recent years wind-assisted propulsion for commercial ships has gained an increasing interest as valuable alternative to reduce fuel pollutant emissions. However, the development of feasible and commercially viable wind propulsion systems to partially (or fully) propel a ship is nowadays hindered by the difficulties of modelling the...

A bow wave breaking is one of the most prominent factors to be considered regarding the nonlinearity of added resistance for a ship. Considering the stability of the bow wave breaking, which is mostly influenced by the ship speed and the waterline entrance angle, can enhance understanding of the nonlinearity. Understanding of the nonlinearity...

The particle image velocimetry (PIV) technique has become a reliable method for capturing the velocity field and its derivatives, even in complex flows and is now also widely used for validation of numerical codes. As the imaging system is sensitive to vibrations, the application in environments such as towing tanks makes it a challenging task....

This report describes two methods to analyse the effect of sloshing on ship motions. The first method applies linear potential theory on both the barge and the internal tanks. For the barge the radiation, diffraction and incoming wave potentials are solved. For the internal tanks only the radiation potential is calculated, as there are obviously...

Non-linear free-surface phenomena, such as extreme waves and violent sloshing, and their impact on the dynamics response of the containing vessels have long been subjects that could only be studied with experimental methods. Nowadays, computational CFD tools can make a significant contribution to these flow problems. The paper starts with a...

Three-dimensional tank in smooth tank is of concern in various engineering applications. Sloshing waves in moving tanks have been studied numerically, theoretically and experimentally in past several decades and many significant phenomena have been considered in those studies, especially the linear and nonlinear effects of sloshing wave with...

Offshore structures are designed to resist the impact of the extreme wave. Shell EP Projects desires a computer model that is able to simulate the impact of the design wave on gravity based offshore platforms, such as the Sakhalin PA-B platform. Comflow is a numerical model that simulates fluid flow, by solving the Navier-Stokes equations using...
