Learning outcome Students will complete a master thesis within the engineering field. It is mainly elected when students are studying, or doing an internship, abroad and therefore are unable to attend the surveying project Problem Analysis Thesis - 15 ECTS The problem analysis thesis can be seen as a proposal to the final thesis.
More information is to be seen in the subject: "Thesis" Thesis - 30 ECTS The thesis is a medium by which a participant demonstrates attainment of a professional level within his or her Offshore Engineering MSc Degree programme.
Introduction to maintainability and its various measures Workshops and case studies: Work in groups to determine the risk and reliability of subsea production systems, power distribution networks, wind turbines, gas turbines, etc. Generally speaking, each participant is expected to include the following in his or her own study programme: The common core curriculum Elective courses to complement ECTS The Core Curriculum The core curriculum for the master degree Offshore Engineering consists of the following courses.
Intended learning outcomes On successful completion of this module a student should be able to: Assemble and evaluate the different components of the CFD process. This is followed by the linear theory of surface gravity waves.
The area of interest is to be chosen by the student in colaboration with one of the professors from the faculty. The objective of this course is to become prepared to handle uncertainties in a design situation. Simple cells, electrochemical series, galvanic, series, Nernst equation, Common cathodic reactions, general corrosion, Pourbaix diagram, Corrosion Kinetics: Polarisation diagrams, practical measurements, passivity, Corrosion Mechanisms: Effects of oxygen and carbon dioxide, galvanic corrosion, pitting and crevice corrosion, mechanical interactions, microbial corrosion, corrosion of welds, stress corrosion cracking, hydrogen embrittlement and effects of H2S, High temperature corrosion, Corrosion Control: Paints, cathodic protection, corrosion resistant alloys, corrosion monitoring, control by design.
The second part of the course focuses on wave transformation in coastal waters, and therefore on the effects of sea bottom topography and currents shoaling, refraction, diffraction, reflection, depth-induced breaking.
Intended learning outcomes On successful completion of this module a student should be able to: Use the basic principles of material structures on a micro and macro scale, to propose expected microstructures and discuss the impact on mechanical performance and hence link processing of materials to their applications, Justify the selection of specific materials for different applications steels, stainless steels, non-ferrous alloys, polymers, composites, corrosion resistant alloys and concreteDiscuss the application of codes and standards, Distinguish between the main types of corrosion and discuss the conditions under which they can occur, Apply the knowledge of the principles of corrosion to examples and to the evaluation of the factors that affect its rate and use this to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the principal methods of corrosion protection to select appropriate methods of corrosion control.
The surveying project is to be done in large groups of students, whereas the research exercise is to be done individually. Identification of the role of inspection and Structural Health Monitoring SHM in risk reduction and reliability improvement.
