Water spewing and muck plugging often occur during earth pressure balance (EPB) shield machines tunnelling in water-rich sandy strata, even though the conventional foam has been employed to condition sandy soils. In this study, a novel thickened foaming agent suitable for EPB shield tunnelling in water-rich sandy strata is developed. In...

As a result of more stable wind conditions and the depletion of near-shore locations, wind farms are moving farther offshore into deeper waters, challenging the current limits of offshore heavy-lift operations. This paper presents and verifies a novel frequency-domain framework to perform extensive site-specific analysis, of floating...

Due to the growing demand for offshore wind energy and the increasing wind turbine sizes, a shortage of capable installation vessels is anticipated by 2024. Consequently, the utilisation of heavy-lift vessels, previously not employed for bottom-founded or floating offshore wind turbine installations, may become imperative to realise the offshore...

This thesis focuses on the going-on-location (GoL) operation of jack-up vessels in the offshore wind energy industry. The GoL process involves the transition of a jack-up vessel from a free-floating state to a state where it’s elevated above the waterline and pinned to the seabed. The workability of these vessels is significantly affected by the...

Offshore wind energy is poised for significant growth, with three major trends emerging: larger wind turbines, offshore wind farm sites in deeper waters further from the coast, and a shift towards floating offshore wind energy. While current floating wind turbines are installed using a tow-to-site strategy, the increasing size of turbines and...

Adapting the size of upending cradles according to the ever-increasing dimensions of offshore wind turbine monopiles is costly and requires structural modifications to the associated Heavy Lift Vessels (HLVs). This study therefore investigates the potential of the Monopile Upending Smart Tool (MUST), which is a platform suspended in the HLV...

Currently, Ordinary Portland cement (OPC) concrete accounts for the world's 8-10% anthropogenic carbon/ greenhouse (GHG) emissions, where 90-95% of the emissions are due to the production of OPC. A 200% increase in OPC demand is projected by 2050 from 2010 levels. Therefore, it is urgent to reduce these emissions arising from its production....

Using a floating vessel operating on its DP-system and using a motion-compensated pile gripper to install monopiles could be the installation method of the future. Therefore, this thesis focuses on this method. The main objective of this thesis project is to build a model that accurately describes the motions of the Stella Synergy, the monopile,...

Offshore contractors use special cable laying vessels (CLV’s) in order to install subsea power cables, which transport offshore generated energy. Workability studies are performed to evaluate whether operations can be performed or not. These workability studies are subsequently a combination between operability assessments (performed in OrcaFlex...

Most of the waste glass, such as flat glass, glass bottle, is buried in the landfill, which is not desirable because it is not biodegradable and is not conducive to the long-term development of the environment. The glass powder (GP) with a certain fineness has excellent pozzolanic effect and can be used as a potential supplementary cementing...

In this paper, four kinds of ecological fine aggregates (manufactured sand, recycled sand, aeolian sand and river sand) were used to prepared UHPC, the effects of the fine aggregates on the workability, rheological properties and mechanical properties of UHPC were studied. The results reveal that the type and content of fine aggregate have an...

Within this thesis an attempt is made to improve the seakeeping of a Service Operation Vessel (SOV) by means of an active anti-roll tank (ART). It is researched if the addition of a wave prediction system can improve the ART’s performance. As the seakeeping of the SOV is most important for the installed motion compensated gangway, the...

The present research was aimed at lowering the deformation temperature by applying cover tube casing (CTC) to AZ31 magnesium alloy samples subjected to equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) without triggering surface defects and/or fracture. The Cockcroft-Latham (C & L) fracture model was incorporated into finite element simulation and...

In this study, glass wool waste was utilized by means of alkali-activation with blast furnace slag. Reaction kinetics, workability, mechanical properties and autogenous shrinkage of alkali-activated slag and glass wool were comprehensively studied. Results indicated an optimal modulus (SiO<sub>2</sub>/Na<sub>2</sub>O) of the activator related...

A QUAD lift is a new lifting method in which dual crane vessels combine their vessel capability to increase their offshore lift performance. The use of the Jumbo J-Class vessels in a QUAD lift creates the opportunity to increase the offshore lift capacity and to install structures with larger dimensions. When floating vessels are close to each...

In current offshore wind turbine (WTG) tower installations, bolted flange connections are common. These connections are however reaching their limit due to the maximized size of the bolts. Also, bolted connections require the motions between the tower and foundation to be limited during installation, suggesting their workability of installation...

Wave overtopping is an important aspect for the design of rubble mound breakwaters. Acceptable overtopping limits are usually based on the mean overtopping discharge or the maximum overtopping volume (EurOtop, 2018). For temporary situations, such as breakwaters under construction, overtopping limits are not clearly defined. This complicates the...

To respond to the growing offshore industry Jumbo Maritime has designed a new vessel to expand its offshore fleet: The Stella Synergy. The vessel will be able to install monopiles for the offshore wind and oil and gas industry. The main objective of this thesis is: Making a model that is able to predict the motions of the vessel as well as the...

The diversity of offshore structures is increasing nowadays, as more and more offshore structures are floating. To study the opportunity for Ampelmann to expand to the floating market it is necessary to see if working with floating structures requires a new way of operating. A potential market for Ampelmann is transferring maintenance personnel...

Designing a controlled offshore system is a challenging process, the system dynamics are often nonlinear and subjected to loads that are random in nature. Furthermore, the proper description of the system’s dynamical behaviour involves knowledge pertaining to several fields. Unfortunately, at the design level, the process is often segregated...
