Course content

Introduction to design and analysis of machinery as well as power transmission systems in marine and offshore renewable energy applications. Designing mechanical power transmission systems e.g. gears, bearings, shafts and rotors, automatic operation systems, and hydraulic and pneumatic actuators, used in marine operation, offshore installation, ship power systems, offshore wind turbines and wave energy convertors.

Learning outcome

At the completion of the subject, students should be able to:
- design and analysis power transmission systems in ships, offshore wind turbines and similar in marine environment. This includes industrial gearboxes, rotors, couplings and vibration isolation systems.
- design and analysis machinery used in marine operations, lifting, installation, transportation, offshore renewable industry, aquaculture and subsea industry. This includes for example hydraulic and pneumatic systems, cranes and winches.
- use state-of-the-art design codes implemented in the industry.
- employ latest software and tools used today to design and model such systems.
- design and analysis both at system as well as component levels.
- to put the design at practice at lab.
- able to design and analysis mechanical systems under stochastic load conditions.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures, exercises, computer exercises, lab and project work. All lectures will be in English.

Compulsory assignments

  • Project works, exercises

Further on evaluation

Portfolio assessment is the basis for the grade in the course. The portfolio includes a final written exam (60%) and projects (40%). The results for the parts are given in %-scores, while the entire portfolio is assigned a letter grade.
Examination papers will be given in English only. Students are free to choose Norwegian or English for written assessments.
Postponed/repeated exams may be oral.
For a re-take of an examination, all assessments during the course must be re-taken.

Specific conditions

Exam registration requires that class registration is approved in the same semester. Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
