Learning outcome

Knowledge:
- have a comprehensive understanding of the mathematical models used to analyse relevant marine operations.
- has a fundamental knowledge of irregular sea states and how waves affects the vessel response.
- has an overview of relevant marine operations and how to estimate response of the involved vessels and/or the equipment used during the operation.
- has a good understanding of the fact that planning and execution of marine operations requires interdisciplinary insight and competence.
- has a good knowledge of existing rules and guidelines to perform dynamic analysis of marine operations.
