Completed Research Projects

Research projects concerning the simulation of safety-relevant situations regarding the interaction of service ships with offshore wind turbine plants

Maritime Safety Aspects Regarding Installation and Maintenance of Offshore Wind Turbines

Project Partner: Institute for Ship Structural Design and Analysis Founded by the Hamburg Research and Science Foundation

January 2012 - December 2014

Objective: Simulation of the boat-landing manoeuvre taking the interaction between waves, bodies and fender into account.

Vessel Motion and Fender Friction Project

Project Partner: Institute for Ship Structural Design and Analysis, Carbon Trust (UK)


Objective: The investigation of boat-landing maneuver at offshore monopiles. Provide experimental data for validation and calibration of vessel-fender performance simulation models.
