Fatigue is the most common source behind failures of mechanical structures. In order to study the phenomena, experiments have been performed by Lloyd's Register and other tests have been presented in literature. Performing real life fatigue experiments requires a long time, a considerable amount of money and it is size limited.

HeeremaMarine Contractors (HMC) owns and operates several semi-submersible crane vessels (SSCV) used for offshore heavy lift operations. Throughout the engineering phase of a (dual crane) heavy lift, dynamic lift models are generated by combining bodies with their hydrodynamic properties, inertia and spring-dashpot elements. The models represent...

In this report, the issue of pitch control in a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine is tackled. By using and aerodynamic model, a theoretical optimum pitch solution is found and then a simple four-bar mechanism is adapted to that theoretical solution to achieve a simple and elegant control of the pitch in the turbine. The model used is the Actuator...
