• A 2D Experimental and Numerical Study of Moonpools With Recess 

      Ravinthrakumar, Senthuran; Kristiansen, Trygve; Ommani, Babak (Chapter, 2018)
      Moonpool resonance is investigated in a two-dimensional setting in terms of regular, forced heave motions of a model with moonpool with different rectangular-shaped recess configurations. A recess is a reduced draft zone ...
    • Coupled vessel and moonpool responses in regular and irregular waves 

      Ravinthrakumar, Senthuran; Kristiansen, Trygve; Molin, Bernard Jean Marie; Ommani, Babak (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Hydrodynamic coupling between the ship and moonpool responses is investigated. Dedicated experiments are carried out in the Ocean Basin at Sintef Ocean. Three different moonpool sizes are studied, where the moonpool length ...
    • Evaluation of Extreme Design Wave Loads for Hull Girder Strength Assessment 

      Ravinthrakumar, Senthuran (Master thesis, 2016)
      Ships may operate in severe sea states, which might induce large vertical bending moments. The classification rules have developed empirical curves for the extreme wave-induced vertical bending moments. It is therefore of ...
    • Modeling and Analysis of a Submerged Floating Tunnel 

      Vik, Hans Jakob (Master thesis, 2017)
      This master thesis is a study of a submerged floating tunnel and its responses exposed to hydrodynamic loading. Static, modal and dynamic analyses have been performed in ANSYS Mechanical 16.2 for the a global bridge model. ...
    • Numerical and Experimental Studies of Resonant Flow in Moonpools in Operational Conditions 

      Ravinthrakumar, Senthuran (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2020:152, Doctoral thesis, 2020)
      The present work is relevant for ships with moonpools. A moonpool is a vertical opening through the ship hull, typically used to descend objects into the sea. Model tests and numerical simulations are carried out to ...
