Current Research

Researching Induced Ductile to Brittle Transition Impact Cut (IDBTIC)

Abstract:

The existing cutting techniques, such as laser, waterjet, plasma, saw, shear and explosive, which are widely used for the cutting of structural steels have their own limitations and have different performance measures in terms of the cutting cost, speed, precision, quality and energy consumption.

This project is aimed at the development of a new steel cutting technique for in-air and underwater applications based on the innovative concept of induced ductile to brittle transition impact.

The successful completion of this project will lead to a cutting method that is cheaper, faster, and safer than the existing methods. This can have a significant contribution in reducing the manufacturing cost of steel infrastructures and marine structures as well as reducing the removal and recycling cost of offshore structures.

 

DecomTools:

Goal:

With the overall aim of reducing the cost, risk, and environmental impact of the decommissioning of wind farms, our approach in the EU Interreg NSR funded project DecomTools, is to develop a decision support system (DSS), by which one can define different decommissioning scenarios and then evaluate them against CRE (Cost, Risk, and Environmental impact) measures.https://northsearegion.eu/decomtools/https://northsearegion.eu/decomtools/project-partners/
