Endre Sandvik has started his PhD studies – and moved into
Trond Johnsen, manager of WP4 was pleased to welcome Endre
Sandvik to our offices here at Marinteknisk senter in June 2016.
Endre was engaged as a PhD candidate in February – and
started up work while finishing 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 Smart
Maritime partner Vard Design, and supervised by Professor Sverre Steen.
His work for WP4 will focus on 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 the PhD thesis is “Simulation Based Design of
Ships With Regards to System Performance”.
His supervisors for the PhD thesis will be Professor Stein
Ove Erikstad, and co-supervisors Professor Sverre Steen and Associated
Professor Eilif Pedersen at NTNU department of marine technology.
