• Study on the Effect of Climate Change on Ship Responses Based on Nonlinear Simulations 

    Guo, Bingjie; Gramstad, Odin; Vanem, Erik; Bitner-Gregersen, Elzbieta (The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2019)
    Hull girder ultimate strength governs sagging and hogging failures, which is one of the most critical failure modes for a ship hull. The structural reliability analysis methodology has been used to develop common structural ...
  • Theoretical and Applied Insights on Pistons Buckling According to DNV Regulation 

    Fantuzzi, Nicholas; Borgia, Fabio (The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2019)
    Pistons are fundamental structural elements in any engineering practices such as mechanical, civil, aerospace, and offshore engineering. Their strength strongly depends on buckling load, and such information is a major ...
  • Ship-to-Ship State Observer Using Sensor Fusion and the Extended Kalman Filter 

    Tørdal, Sondre Sanden; Hovland, Geir (The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2019)
    In this paper, a solution for estimating the relative position and orientation between two ships in six degrees-of-freedom (6DOF) using sensor fusion and an extended Kalman filter (EKF) approach is presented. Two different ...
  • Structural Safety Analyses for Offshore Platforms Under Explosion Loadings 

    Ryu, Yonghee; Burgan, Bassam; Choi, Jaewoong; Lee, Heesung (The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2019)
    A gas explosion in an offshore platform may result in loss of life, pollution, and critical damage to facilities. Safety critical structural elements of these facilities have to be designed to withstand high explosion ...
  • Extreme Response Prediction of Steel Risers Using a Four Parameter Distribution 

    Ibarra, Miguel Alfonso Calderon; de Sousa, Fernando Jorge Mendes; Sagrilo, Luís Volnei Sudati; Low, Ying Min (The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2019)
    Short-term extreme response estimates are required in many areas of ocean and offshore engineering, such as steel risers design. As in many cases, the response in non-Gaussian, a theoretical solution, is usually not readily ...
