Efficient Prediction of Dynamic Response for Flexible and Multi-body Marine StructuresReza Taghipour , Professor Torgeir Moan

The objective is to establish models that enable efficient and robust analysis of wave-induced motion and structural response for novel marine structures.

The focus is mainly on flexible and multi-body marine structures with applications in Very Large Floating Structures, Wave Energy Converters, Aquaculture Structures and Oil and Gas industry.

Structural Analysis of Ship Collision and GroundingPh.D candidateLin Hong, Prof. Jørgen Amdahl
  • A brief overview of the ongoing project – ScenaRisC&G: Scenario-based Approach to Risk Analysis of Ship Collision and Grounding.
  • As the process of collision and grounding can be decoupled into external dynamics and internal mechanics, the focus here is placed on internal mechanics. Existing methods are summarized, and the aim is to develop a fast estimation tool with relative accuracy. Therefore, simplified analytical method is adopted.

Various types of web girders in a double hull ship midsection

  • Simplified analytical methods for web girders in collision and grounding are developed. Two different deformation patterns have been identified, namely local denting and sliding deformation. Both the crushing force and the energy dissipation capacity are derived and verified by experiments or finite element simulations.
  • Further work: develop simple tools for fast and reliable assessment of the outcome of accidental collision and grounding events which can be incorporated into decision support tools for crisis handling in emergency situations, e.g. for tankers in disabled conditions.
Safety level in marine operations – Sea transportAsle Natskår. Supervisor: Prof. Torgeir Moan, Co-supervisor: Per Øystein Alvær, DNV
  • Investigate the safety level inherent in marine operations designed according to recognized rules.
  • The project focus on safety level including the effect of human errors.
  • Sea transport on ship or barge. What is the safety level incorporated in simplified motion criteria?

A Specialized FEM Prototype for Structural Analysis of a Floating Fish CagePaul Thomassen, Prof. Bernt Leira
  • Escape of fish due to structural collapse is a serious problem for the 20 billion NOK Norwegian fish farming industry
  • Trial-and-error has been the dominating design method rather than scientifically based structural analysis and design.
  • Why? A slender, floating structure is unusual, i.e. methods, results, and tools from related areas of engineering cannot be adopted directly.
  • Approach:
    • Investigate the hydrodynamic model.
    • Investigate structural characteristics.
    • Focus on fatigue design of fish cages in steel.
    • Implement a dynamic, nonlinear time domain analysis in irregular waves.
    • Develop a specialized FEM prototype based on an object-oriented FEM framework.

frequency domain fatigue analysis of wide band processes

Frequency-domain Fatigue Analysis of Wide-band Processes

  • The objective is to develop a frequency-domain method for fatigue analysis of random processes with a general wide-band power spectral density function.
  • First, the method for bimodal Gaussian fatigue analysis is introduced, using the envelope of narrow-band processes.
  • This method is then generalized to Gaussian processes with three or more modes.
  • Finally, for a general wide-band process, a method is developed by dividing the spectrum into three segments and calculating the fatigue damage as the same as for an ideal trimodal process.

  • Objective: To study global, vertical wave loads on platform decks in an irregular sea.
  • Method of Analysis:
    • 2-D Slamming Model (von Kármán) applied to linear, incident Gaussian sea-state for fixed, rigid deck,
    • Extend to 3-D including Diffraction and platform motions,
    • Time-domain simulation of forces and post-process for statistics,
    • Compare against analytical Gaussian formulation.
  • Key results sought:
    • A probability distribution for maximum/minimum vertical force, and its duration
    • Characterize the response of a floating structure to deck loads and duration.
    • Comparison against experimental data
  • Possible extensions:
    • 2nd-order wave models – simulation vs. analytical approach.

Numerical Simulation of Scour around a Marine PipelineMuk Chen Ong, Dr. Torbjørn Utnes, Dr. Lars Erik Holmedal, Prof. Dag Myrhaug, Prof. Bjørnar Pettersen

  • The objective is to develop a robust numerical model which is able to predict 2-D pipeline scour under the effect of current and waves respectively, and possibly, the effect of combined wave and current.
  • Validation of a standard high Reynolds number k-e model for rough turbulent oscillatory flows with suspended sediments is presented.
  • Numerical work using RANS with a standard high Reynolds number k-e model on flows around a smooth circular cylinder at high Re of 1x106 ~ 3.6x106, which are beyond the supercritical flow regime, is presented.

Hydroelastic slamming including air pocketBjørn Chr. Abrahamsen Supervisors: Odd Faltinsen and Torgeir Moan
  • The objective is to investigate slamming loads inside tanks when the free surface captures an air pocket (figure 1). The compressibility of the air causes an oscillatory pressure in time with small spatial variation ( figure 2)
  • When these pressure oscillations governs the flow physics, scaling laws are affected. In addition the oscillatory pressure can cause important hydroelastic effects on the tank structure. These are the two main aspects of this project.
  • A theoretical model of this phenomena is planned using a combination of the boundary element method BEM and an analytical method. For the hydroelastic problem a combination of BEM and the finite element method FEM is planned.

Direct Numerical Simulation of Back-ward Facing Step Couette FlowGeorge El Khoury, Mustafa Barri, Prof. Helge I. Andersson, Prof. Bjørnar Pettersen

  • Separation and reattachment of turbulent flows occur in many practical engineering applications, both in internal flow systems such as combustors and channels with sudden expansion, and in external flows such as around airfoils.
  • In the present study , turbulent flow over a back-ward facing step is studied by direct numerical simulation of Navier Stokes equation at a Reynolds number 1300 based on half channel height at the input
Applications of a BEM to strongly nonlinear wave-body interaction problemsHui Sun and Prof. Odd M. Faltinsen
  • A 2D Boundary Element Method is developed to study the strongly nonlinear wave-body interaction problem. Two applications are presented.
  • The first one is the asymmetric water entry of a bow-flare ship section with heel angle. Non-viscous flow separation from knuckles or from the leeward surface can be simulated.
  • The second application is to use the 2D BEM together with a 2D+t method to study the vertical loads on a planing vessel in heave or pitch motions. Then a linear stability theory is applied to predict the inception of porpoising instability.
