Technology conception tools for offshore renewable energies applications

The objective is to have methods of characterisation and simulation to optimise the design, operation and maintenance of structures and their components through better control behaviors in the marine environment.

The main issues int his program concern the optimisation of the overall performance of systems, the improvement of their competitiveness as well as the development of design standards. Thus, the design tools developed here will provide industry stakeholders the means to optimize technologies to better position themselves in the market with knowledge of their behavior and in accordance with future standards.

Components and structures behavior in marine environment

  • Fluid/structure couplings
  • Impact of biofouling on components  and structures
  • Mooring and cable lay-out

Service follow up and life duration in marine environment

  • Behaviour of structures and components under fatigue and shock
  • Aging materials, components  and structures
  • Innovative monitoring strategies
