### Course content

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.

### Learning outcome

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 guideines, 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
