Description of regular linear waves in deep water. Basic introduction to terms such as hydrodynamic mass, moderation and wave forces. Irregular waves and wave spectra. Short-term and long-term wave statistics. Basic description of wave forces, currents and wind on solid and floating constructions. Descriptions of movement of floating constructions in waves with the use of transfer functions. Response spectrum and response statistics.
An overview of marine technology used in marine surveys. Supported by an introduction to the nature and susceptibility of different marine environments, and thus offer the students important complementary knowledge for projects in their chosen profession. The students will further be made aware of issues relevant to society that may be linked to marine engineering: such as environmental and global change issues, and long-term consequences of the explorations of ocean resources. Based on the above, the students will also be given the opportunity to develop an understanding of the social and civil responsibility of marine engineers and the public perception of their role in society. Project management.
