PhD candidate WP4
PhD candidate WP4 - Ship System Integration and Validation Endre Sandvik is currently writing his master thesis in marine technology at NTNU with specialization in marine hydrodynamics titled “Design Optimization of Offshore Construction Vessels”. The thesis is written in cooperation with Vard Design and supervised by Professor Sverre Steen.
His work for Smart Maritime involves methods and models for ship system integration and validation, primarily by developing a simulation environment for the virtual testing and benchmarking of new technology and design solutions. Modelling and integration of hydrodynamics, power systems and service equipment in an operational context defined by transport logistics, marine operations and environmental conditions will be important research topics for his PhD thesis. The output of the model will be the ship´s lifecycle performance with respect to energy efficiency, operability and safety, both for service type vessels (offshore) and deep sea shipping.
The title for his PhD thesis is “Simulation Based Design of Ships With Regards to System Performance”. Main supervisor is Professor Stein Ove Erikstad, and co-supervisors Professor Sverre Steen and Associated Professor Eilif Pedersen at NTNU department of marine technology.
