• Code-to-Code Verification of End-Anchored Floating Bridge Global Analysis 

      Viuff, Thomas; Xiang, Xu; Leira, Bernt Johan; Øiseth, Ole (Chapter, 2018)
      A code-to-code comparison of the dynamic characteristics of an end-anchored floating pontoon bridge is presented for two commercial software commonly used in the offshore industry, i.e. SIMO-RIFLEX and ORCAFLEX. Furthermore, ...
    • Dynamic Response of a Floating Bridge Structure 

      Viuff, Thomas; Leira, Bernt Johan; Øiseth, Ole; Xiang, Xu (Chapter; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      A theoretical overview of the stochastic dynamic analysis of a floating bridge structure is presented. Emphasis is on the wave-induced response and the waves on the sea surface are idealized as a zero mean stationary ...
    • Effects of wave directionality on extreme response for a long end-anchored floating bridge 

      Viuff, Thomas; Leira, Bernt Johan; Xiang, Xu; Øiseth, Ole (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Reliable design codes are of great importance when constructing new civil engineering concepts such as floating bridges. Previously only a scarce number of floating bridges have been built in rough wave conditions and ...
    • Impact of Hydrodynamic Interaction Between Pontoons on Global Responses of a Long Floating Bridge Under Wind Waves 

      Xiang, Xu; Viuff, Thomas; Leira, Bernt Johan; Øiseth, Ole (Chapter, 2018)
      The hydrodynamic interaction between floating bridge pontoons and its impact on the bridge global responses are investigated in the current study. The global model for end-anchored floating bridge for Bjørnefjord crossing ...
    • Maneuvering of two Interacting Ships in Calm Water 

      Xiang, Xu; Faltinsen, Odd (Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2010)
      The maneuvering of two interacting ships in calm water at Froude numbers less than ~0.2 and in water of infinite horizontal extent is studied based on an extended version of the maneuvering model for two ships by Skejic ...
    • Maneuvering of two interacting ships in waves 

      Xiang, Xu (Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2012:361, Doctoral thesis, 2012)
      This thesis describes the development of a module based maneuvering prediction system for one ship or two interacting ships in calm water or waves. The work is a continuation and generalization of the previous work of ...
    • Modelling and Analysis of a Floating Bridge 

      Vika, Eirik Breisnes (Master thesis, 2018)
      The Norwegian National Public Road Administration is working on a project to improve the coastal road E39, connecting the cities along the west coast of Norway. Today, this road has seven ferry crossings which are to be ...
