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 thesis presents a numerical study on dredging induced undrained instability and subsequent static liquefaction of submarine landslides. For the study, a pre-existing hydro-dynamic uncoupled submarine slope numerical model, developed by Molenkamp (1999), has been modified to incorporate a fully hydro-dynamic coupled interaction between...

The Netherlands has always been in close proximity to water, whether its rivers or the sea. This proximity to water and the need for land to settle and farm, led to vast amounts of land reclamation by constructing dykes along the water features to prevent flooding of the new earned land. This newly reclaimed land started to subside over the...

Shipyards these days see an increase in customers that specify combined speed and seakeeping ability design requirements. This requires the shipyard to make a prediction of the additional installed power required to maintain a certain speed when waves are encountered. The additional required installed power is directly related to the average...

After more than 85 years, the iconic Afsluitdijk is in need of a reinforcement. During the latest safety assessment of Rijkswaterstaat the dike did not meet the standards at two components; the amount of wave overtopping (>10 l/m/s) and armour stability. This research goes into detail about the overtopping on the Afsluitdijk. In the new...

In this thesis, we investigate a sparse basis for ultrasound images, so that we can use sparse regularization in imaging. Actually, there are few previous researches explicitly demonstrating that medical ultrasound images can be sparsified for some dictionary. We consider various orthogonal transforms such as wavelet transforms, cosine...

This study presents the results of small scale flume experiments on a submerged rectangular cylinder subjected to a current, regular wave and combined wave-current environment. The objective of the study is to gain more knowledge about the hydrodynamics around and the kinematics of a submerged structure, to give a contribute to the research...

In the transition to renewable energy, harvesting the power from oceanic waves is often mentioned to be next step after the deployment of wind energy technology. Although many different solutions for wave energy conversion (WEC) are being developed and financial support schemes exist, commercially extracting this energy seems however to be...

Coda wave interferometry is a technique used in the field of seismology, which utilizes the later part of the signal (coda) to detect subtle changes in a medium. In recent years, the application of coda wave interferometry to concrete structure has been assessed for structural health monitoring purposes. Smart aggregate is a sensor which...

Wind turbines constitute a sustainable and effective solution for the production of energy using wind power. Offshore wind turbines are becoming of special interest. However, their design poses great challenges, since an offshore structure is subjected to combined wind and wave dynamic loading that is characteristic of the installation site and...

A novel technique for measuring capillary/gravity waves travelling on air/water interfaces is investigated. The main motivation is to measure the free surface deformations of an air cavity used for air lubrication of ship hulls. Due to limitations in the available techniques, two novel methods are proposed, out of which the Stereo Particle Image...

A substantial part of structural damage for conventional vessels is caused by complex free surface events like slamming, breaking waves and green water. These events lead to the interaction of air and water where air can be entrained in water. The resulting air bubbles can considerably affect the evolution of the pressure caused by hydrodynamic...

To counteract the effect of climate change, a global agreement was put into force in 2016, aiming to limit the increase in average global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In that respect, European countries are investing in cleaner sources of energy and predominantly offshore wind, which has seen a rapid growth over the last years....

This research describes a new method called SWDD (Klopman, Witteveen+Bos, 2018b), which can obtain information on wave propagation directions from the surface elevations at a set of positions. The primary intention of the method is to separate multiple incoming wave components, i.e. wave heights, phases and directions. The goal is to obtain the...

In numerical methods, correct geometry description and mesh refinement are a challenge. By using a more geometrically based Finite Element Analysis (FEA) type method called ‘Isogeometric Analysis’ (IGA), exact geometry description can be attained, even on coarse meshes. Furthermore, mesh refinement is relatively easy, since no communication with...

Due to the removal of mangrove forests, coastal zones can suffer from severe erosion. One of the proposed solutions is the construction of permeable structures. This study aims to optimise the design of permeable (brushwood) structures in order to restore the sediment balance and encourage mangrove re-establishment on tropical mud coasts....

In 5G transmitters, high efficiency, high linearity, and compatibility with MIMO and beamforming techniques are of utmost importance. Typically, enhancement techniques like supply modulation or load modulation are used when dealing with envelope modulated communication signals, which increasingly have high peak-to-average-power ratios (PAPR)....

In this work, a MATLAB based graphical user interface (GUI) tool is built to analyze Quasi-optical (QO) systems in reception with the Fourier Optics (FO) and Geometrical Optics (GO) methods. Five canonical QO components are discussed, namely parabolic reflectors, elliptical lenses, hemispherical lenses, hyperbolic lenses, and elliptical mirrors....

The need for advanced ship propulsion control systems is constantly increasing as the demand for high vessel performance is growing at the same time. Speed trials are considered as an operation during which the vessel has to achieve the highest performance by attaining the agreed maximum ship speed. However, sometimes vessels have to sail in...
