Studiehåndbokas emner for 2016/2017:
(English)Marine Operations in the Ocean Space
Basic marine hydrodynamics:
- Regular and irregular waves
- Response in regular waves
- Natural frequencies and resonance
- Wave-induced motions
- Frequency of encounter
- Forward speed and current effects
- Weather window
- Uncertainties in weather forecasting
- Dynamic Positioning
- Mooring analysis
Relevant Case studies:
- Marine seismic operations
- Cable operations
- Anchor handling
- Bow loading
- Offshore vessels and operations
The student shall:
- Know the basic principles of marine operations in the ocean space with emphasis on how the environment is affecting the operations.
- have a thorough understanding of the key environmental factors affecting the performance of marine operations in the ocean space,
- know the basic hydrodynamics as a theoretical basis for operations in the surface zone,
- know the basic principles in determining the operational window based on weather conditions,
- have an overview of the principles and operational challenges of station-keeping,
- have good knowledge of how marine operations can be modelled and simulated.
The students shall be able to:
- understand limitations in modelling and simulation of marine operations,
- propose and evaluate solutions for planning of effective operations.
The student shall be able to work in project teams of Marine Operations. He/she has the foundation to acquire new and more advanced knowledge related to work tasks and operations within the marine field. The student shall be able to contribute in discussions regarding relevant marine operations.
Lectures, group work, self-studies and simulator demonstrations.
