Morphologic Evolution of a Nearshore Berm: One Year Monitoring at Ft. Myers Beach, Florida
Nourishment in the form of a nearhsore berm has become an important alternative method to protecting shorelines and introducing sediment back into the littoral system. In 2009, a nearshore berm was constructed at Ft. ...
Controlled Intake Area Dredging for Fine Sediment Removal To Improve Water Quality in the Indian River Lagoon
This study is an investigation of hydraulic dredging specifically designed to remove muck and other fine sediments from local water systems in Brevard County, Florida. The goal of the project is to improve water quality ...
CFD Analysis of Resistance for Stepless and Stepped Planing Hulls
It is the endeavour of naval architects to design hull forms with the least amount of power consumption. In this respect, Naval Architects have been obsessed with the design of various hull forms optimized for a particular ...
The Corrosion and Biofouling Characteristics of Sealed vs. Perforated Offshore Monopile Interiors: Experiment Design Comparing Corrosion and Environment Inside Steel Pipe
This research addresses the need to improve on the existing methods for the corrosion control of the monopile interiors used to support wind powered turbines by incorporating a design that also enhances marine habitats ...
Development, Testing, Analysis, and Efficiency of a Variable Area Dredge in Combination with a Mobile Ferrate-Based Treatment Facility
This thesis proposal outlines the development and testing of a mobile slurry treatment trailer coupled with a variable area suction head and further expands on results and procedures shown in Feasibility of Muck Removal ...
Lighting a Path to Biofouling Prevention: Investigating the Effect of Ultraviolet Light on Biofouling
Ultraviolet light (UV) is considered an environmentally friendly antifouling method because it disrupts biological growth without the release of harmful toxins. The application of UV for the marine shipping industry is ...
