Current projects

Uncertainty reduction in offshore wind farms (EUROS)

EUROS is an STW project aimed at quantifying and reducing uncertainties in offshore wind farms, in order to reduce conservatism in design, optimize the power output, reduce maintenance, and better understand loading on the turbines.
Joint work with TU Delft, TU Eindhoven, Wageningen University, several research institutes and industrial partners.

Sloshing of LNG in tankers (SLING)

SLING is an STW project aimed at understanding sloshing in LNG tankers, especially impact loads, and optimizing design.
Joint work with TU Delft, TU Eindhoven, UT Twente, University of Groningen, Marin and industrial partners.
