• Hydrodynamic effects regarding free-fall lifeboat for compressible air in CFD simulations 

      Svendsen, Andreas Grung (Master thesis, 2017)
      Free falling lifeboats are often used as a last resort evacuation system for fixed or floating offshore installations. Lifeboats are normally resting at a skid which is mounted at the mother vessel, until the hook holding ...
    • Hydrodynamic effects relevant for free-falling lifeboats in wave conditions 

      Netland, Vegard (Master thesis, 2017)
      A free- falling lifeboat is a last resort evacuation system, installed on many rigid and floating offshore structures. The diving process of a free-falling lifeboat is a complex matter, as the external forces varies through ...
    • Structural loads on a free-falling lifeboat 

      Groth, Simen (Master thesis, 2017)
      Free-falling lifeboats are a method of escaping hazardous events in open sea. They rest at a skid until released and launched into the water. It is important that the use of free-falling lifeboats ensure a safe evacuation. ...
    • Validation of Numerical Wave Tank Simulations Using REEF3D With JONSWAP Spectra in Intermediate Water Depth 

      Pakozdi, Csaba; Fouques, Sebastien; Thys, Maxime; Kamath, Arun Mulky; Wang, Weizhi; Hoseini Dadmarzi, Fatemeh; Bachynski, Erin Elizabeth; Bihs, Hans Sebastian (;Paper No: OMAE2020-18298, V001T01A012, Chapter; Conference object, 2020)
      As offshore wind turbines increase in size and output, the support structures are also growing. More sophisticated assessment of the hydrodynamic loads is needed, particularly for the ultimate limit state design. For ...
