ABOUT US

We provide

Consultancy-, Research-, & Educational Services in

Ocean-, Coastal-, Wind- and Structural Engineering

Fluid Structure Systems undertakes analysis, input-to-design and design of structures with a focus on the wind and wave environment and structural vibrations. Our approach in preparation of structural design in fluid flow integrates theoretical, numerical and experimental methodologies. We further strive at integrating research into engineering consultancy results and evaluations when necessary.

 

We assist in establishing and evaluations of MetOcean conditions in relation to conceptual/detailed design of marine structures and coastal protection in seas worldwide. We estimate wind and waves forces on marine/coastal structures and on various infrastructures. Offshore platforms/wind turbine farms, wave energy converters, harbours, breakwaters, coastal structures, bridges are examples of applications.

 

Besides consulting work, we conduct research, development, and strive at innovations, including collaborative efforts within areas of ocean/coastal/wind/structural engineering. We further evaluate reports and articles as a part of the peer-reviewed system in wind, ocean and coastal engineering communities.

 

We provide tailored courses and seminars on our expertise and lessoned learned from our project and recent research findings.

 

Specialties

  • Ocean waves, nearshore hydrodynamics, coastal processes & protection,

  • Analytical estimates.

 

OUR APPROACH

 

Integration of theoretical, numerical

and experimental methodologies.

 

Many large structures behave unpredictable when exposed to wind and/or waves. It is therefore often necessary to do numerical analysis and/or physical tests. It is extremely important to validate numerical results against model scale tests which in turn must be validated against full-scale predictions.

  • Analytical estimates
  • Numerical analysis
  • Comparison of methods
  • Laboratory testing
  • Full-scale predictions
  • Case study deliverables
