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 ...
The Design of an Articulating Five-Headed In-Water Grooming Tool to Maintain Ships Free of Fouling
Biofouling is a major concern to ship owners. Biofouling increases hull roughness, increasing the frictional resistance and fuel consumption while decreasing maximum speed. Finding a way to maintain hulls free from fouling ...
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 ...
Wind-Driven Setup, Roughness, and Drag over a Depth- and Fetch-Limited Coastal Estuary
The understanding of the momentum exchange across the air-sea interface is critical to accurately model and forecast wind speed, wave properties, setup, and circulation. This is particularly true for a restricted estuary, ...
