A combined density functional theory and molecular dynamics approach is employed to study modifications of graphene at atomistic level for better H2 storage. The study reveals H2 desorption from hydrogenated defective graphene structure, V222, to be exothermic. H2 adsorption and desorption processes are found to be more reversible for V222 as...

Sailing in ice-infested waters has become more relevant for the Royal Netherlands Navy (RNLN). A method is developed to determine the technical safe speed for a single ice floe impact with a typical non-ice strengthened naval vessel. A representative ice floe impact load scenario is applied to three structural arrangements for the side shell...

One of the main challenges in applying thick-section high-strength steels (HSS) at arctic condition in offshore and maritime industry is to maintain a sufficient level of toughness to prevent brittle failure. An aspect that requires special attention is the through-thickness microstructural variation which may result in different local...

Modern design procedures in maritime transportation are faced by multiple challenges related to technical and operational constraints for safety, energy efficiency, cost effectiveness and environmental performance. These requirements, in combination with a wide range of machinery technologies, result in a complex landscape of solutions which can...

Increasing resistance against impact, either from other ships, floating objects or icebergs, will make shipping safer. Lean Duplex, which is in the stainless steel family, has high strength, and corrosion resistance. Lean Duplex is investigated focusing on its crash resistance in raking scenarios as part of an ongoing project. Material...

Considerable work has been done on the modelling of fracture and necking for accidents in the maritime and offshore industry, but very little has been done to find the crack orientation during this failure. Such information will be required in future analyses which use the eXtended Finite Element Method (XFEM), rather than the element deletion...

A dedicated team of TNO experts has concluded a series of large-scale tests on a representative composite ship structure. The spectacular ultimate test reached a load of 800 tonnes, which is almost twice the design load.

Increasing pressure on shipping to contribute to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions is changing the landscape for marine fuels. In this Green Maritime Methanol project, the feasibility of application of methanol for the maritime sector are being elaborated, with a focus on short sea shipping. As part of this project, this report compares the Total...

Energy transition is affecting the European maritime sector at an increasing rate. New technologies and regulations are being introduced with increasing speed. The ability to adapt to these changes is crucial for the economic success of the maritime sector. However, the sector is challenged by inertia due to its global nature and long-life...

In a prior project, TNO has presented a low-cost way of finding frac-ture toughness of base materials for cleavage fracture. That method features a small-scale CTOD specimen, combined with simplified sensors, less fatigue pre-cracking, faster testing, and no need for a temperature chamber. This meth-od has been extended to welds by considering...

This paper presents a benchmark study on grounding simulations. The objective was to compare key parameters in modelling techniques and assump-tions for finite element (FE) analysis. Five contributors participated in the bench-mark study by performing numerical simulations, and results were compared with available results from experimental tests...

Offshore activity in low-temperature areas requires the use of analysis methods that are capable of reliably predicting cleavage (brittle) fracture of ferritic steels in order to guarantee the structural integrity during service. Cleavage fracture is controlled by physical events at different size scales and is influenced by the multiple...

It is known that bond line thickness has an effect on the strength of adhesively bonded joints. However, most of the work done in this area focussed on bond lines up to 3 mm thick. In this paper the thickness effect is studied of bond lines up to 10 mm thick, which is a typical thickness for civil infrastructure and maritime applications. An...

Crewmembers are exposed to high work pressure. Pressure on freight tariffs motivates cost reduction in manning and maintenance, whilst societal developments show decreasing tolerances towards incidents. In conjunction with the developments towards autonomous shipping, the need for continuous and unmanned inspection increases. Considerable...

Measurement of the fracture toughness of steel is important for the assurance of the safety of ships and offshore structures, especially when these structures are made of thick sections and/ or applied in cold environments. One key factor that will affect the determination of the fracture toughness is a pop-in, which is a short event in which...

Energy transition towards cleaner fuels and renewable energy brings the attention to liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquid hydrogen (LH2) applications. Cryogenic storage temperatures make the suitable material selection for the construction of such applications difficult. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) thermoplastics are...

Corrosion is a main source of degradation of most offshore and ship structures. Especially ballast tanks are vulnerable to corrosion. Protection is pro-vided by coating systems, postponing the onset of uniform corrosion. It is there-fore essential to have a coating system in place and intact. Inspecting ballast tanks for the integrity of the...
