  1. 1. Ocean Waves Estimation : An Artificial Intelligence Approach

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för innovation, design och teknik

    Author : Andreas Ramberg; [2017]
    Keywords : Artificial Intelligence; Case-Based Reasoning; Encounter Angle; Encounter Spectrum; Feedforward Neural Network; Genetic Algorithm; Inverse Problem; Marine Vessels; Master Thesis; MATLAB; Model Parameter Estimation; Ocean Theory; Peak Period; Response Amplitude Operator; Ships; Significant Wave Height; Transfer Function; Wave Spectrum; Waves;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to solve the mathematical inverse problem of characterizing sea waves based on the responses obtained from a marine vessel sailing under certain sea conditions. By researching this problem the thesis contributes to the marine industry by improving products that are using ocean behavior for controlling ship's dynamics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nearshore Currents in Southeastern Scania

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Emanuel Schmidt; [2017]
    Keywords : Nearshore currents; currents; swimming safety; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The South East Coast of Scania is a popular destination for both Swedish and foreign tourists. The long and wide sandy beaches are well visited by swimmers and beachgoers, but the waters have shown to be treacherous at times. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluation of Global Wave Climate Based on the JMA/MRI-AGCM Climate Change Projection

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Johanna Ekstedt; [2014]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In this study global wave climates for present and future climates are simulated with the WAM model, based on wind fields from the JMA/MRI-AGCM3.2 climate projection. The projected wave fields are analysed and compared for the two periods of 1979-2003 and 2075-2099, and climate change induced differences are identified. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental analysis and evaluation of WaveTubes WEC during tank test at Aalborg University, Denmark.

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Elektricitetslära

    Author : Alexander Torstenfelt; [2014]
    Keywords : wec;

    Abstract : This master thesis is the result after two weeks of persistent effort in a wave basin in Aalborg, Denmark, and later analysis in Uppsala. The client was a start-up wave energy company called WaveTube from Gothenburg. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hindcast of the wave climate in Öresund : modelling of wave climate over 50 years using WAM with wind measurements input

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Laury Renac; Sara Schömer Ericsson; [2014]
    Keywords : Wave climate modelling; WAM; Öresund; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Öresund is a very dynamic economic area with numerous projects, there is a great need of a deeper understanding of the wave climate. The wave measurements currently available are scarce and they do not cover the whole area. READ MORE
