Offshore wind turbines are exposed to complex irregular and highly fluctuating environmental conditions. The analysis is, therefore commonly performed in the time domain, resulting in a time consuming and computationally demanding optimization process. In order to reduce the computational cost, an optimization approach using the principle of...

This research investigates approaches to conduct an efficient sensitivity analysis of wave forcing in coastal erosion studies. For this three speed-accuracy trade-offs have been assessed: (i) between the use of a simple and a complex model, (ii) between the use of several methods for conducting a sensitivity analysis, and (iii) between the use...

During the last years, flood risk assessments at continental and global scales are emerging as useful tools for risk hotspot identification, support for international policy-making and harmonization of strategies for climate change adaptation. The emergence of these models comes to cover the growing demand for integrated, large-scale risk...
