Marine physical processes. Description of waves, currents, wind and formation and mechanics of ice. Resulting consequences for marine activities. Fundamentals of statistical methods used in physical marine environment.

Knowledge of:

The student should have knowledge of:

• Calculation of Coriolis acceleration, and its consequence for wind and current.
• Spectra of wind, wind forces and structural response.
• Vertical wind profile.
• Linear wave theory - wave kinematics and dynamics.
• Wave statistics including wave spectrum.
• Wave forces.
• Ice conditions in the Barents Sea.
• Some basic conditions of sea ice physics.
• Methods for calculating ice loads from level ice on marine structures with oblique and vertical waterline (application of ISO 19906).
• Physical phenomena regarding vertical deformation of floating ice sheets (carrying capacity).
• Assumptions behind the mathematical models to calculate the carrying capacity of floating ice sheets.
• Use of laboratory experiments to find answers to complex problems.

Skills:

The student is able to:

• Make simple calculations with the static wind load.
• Apply the wind profile, extrapolate vertically and discuss wind force and structural response.
• Calculate the movement of non-breaking surface waves on water, according to linear wave theory, and the impact from such waves on vertical walls and circular-cylindrical structures.
• Interpreting a directional spectrum of waves.
• Calculate sea state parameters from time series of waves - wave-to-wave analysis.
• Estimate the extreme values ​​for marine environmental parameters on the basis of long-term measurements.
• Calculate how regular waves change height, length and direction as they propagate into the shallow water against a coast with straight and parallel bottom contours.
• Assess the local ice conditions in the Barents Sea.
• Calculate ice growth and estimate ice thickness of floating ice.
• Using ISO 19906 and estimate forces from level ice on marine structures with oblique and vertical waterline.
• Consider safety with respect to the carrying capacity of floating ice sheets (operations and transport).

General qualifications:

The student has:

• Basics to read, understand and apply key guidelines, standards and recommended practices for design and dimensioning in the field of marine civil engineering.
• A good background to be able to communicate with experts in the disciplines of oceanography, meteorology and arctic technology.
